WWII Veteran, George Sakheim, will speak about his experience as an interpreter at the Nuremberg Trials. Location: La Salle University, Dan Rodden Theatre 1900 W. Olney Avenue – Philadelphia, PA 19141 http://www.lasalle.edu/campusmap/directions/ The Nuremberg military tribunal prosecuted nearly two-dozen top Nazi leaders between November of 1945 and October of 1946. Apart from its historical importance, it also laid the ground work for the interpreting profession as we know it today. Join us on Saturday, October 12, 2013 (11:00AM-2PM) at La Salle University’s Dan Rodden Theatre, where we will be privileged to listen to Dr. George Sakheim’s story, “A Witness to History.” Dr. Sakheim, having served in World War II in the U.S. Army’s 104th Infantry Division as a prisoner-of-war interrogator, was recruited to serve as a civilian interpreter during the Nuremberg trials. This will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for anyone who is interested in hearing a first-hand account of such a significant event.
