In the Name of Humanity

An Evening with Author

Max Wallace

Holocaust historian Max Wallace will talk about his new book, In the Name of Humanity: The Secret Deal to End the Holocaust, which details an audacious scheme by a rescue committee of Swiss ultra-Orthodox Jews led by a remarkable woman named Recha Sterbuch. Wallace will reveal newly discovered archival documents proving that the Committee deceived SS chief Heinrich Himmler into destroying the gas chambers at Auschwitz-Birkenau and terminating the Final Solution in November 1944, a full six months before the end of the war, thus saving tens of thousands of Jews.
