Guest presenter: Guy Stern
Guy Stern was born in Hildesheim, Germany in 1922. He was 11 years old when Hitler came to power and 13 years old as the world began closing in on him and all the Jews of Germany because of the Nuremburg Laws. Slowly the Jews of Germany were being separated out of German society and pushed to emigrate. His parents worked to get him papers to immigrate to the United States. On October 27, 1937 Guy boarded a ship and sailed to America. After being rejected by the Navy for duty because he was not born in America, he was sent with other boys to Kansas. That was the beginning of the journey to Fort Richie, Maryland and then back to Europe for Naval Intelligence.
