Walter Wolff, who founded the Bon Marche furniture store in NY, was the son of a Jewish merchant family that fled Germany to Belgium when the Nazis came to power. He and his family were among the last refugees to be admitted to the U.S. before Pearl Harbor. Walter went on to serve inEurope in the Intelligence Corps, interrogating POWs for prosecution at Nuremberg. He also returned confiscated properties of his extended family, throwing out occupiers and reclaiming ownership. Nina will share his story with us.
