The Volunteer: The True Story of the Resistance Hero who Infiltrated Auschwitz.

Jack Fairweather is a former war reporter in Iraq and Afghanistan and the author of A War of Choice and The Good War. He has served as the Daily Telegraph’s Baghdad bureau chief, and as a video journalist for the Washington Post in Afghanistan. His war coverage has won a British Press Award and an Overseas Press Club award citation.
 
Jack will speak about his new book, The Volunteer: The True Story of the Resistance Hero who Infiltrated Auschwitz. Taking place in Nazi-occupied Poland, it follows the story of Polish underground operative Witold Pilecki who volunteers for a secret mission to infiltrate Auschwitz. Completely erased from the historical record by Poland’s Communist government, Pilecki remains almost unknown to the world -- until now.

Please Note: Mr. Fairweather will be signing books starting at 1:30PM until 2:00PM.  His lecture will start at 2:00PM.  Copies of his book will be available to purchase.
