[Past Event] Surviving the "Zamzam" | In-Person, Ryan Ranch

Course Description:

On March 20, 1941, Fred and Jamie Henderson boarded the Egyptian ship "Zamzam" to travel from Jersey City to Capetown, South Africa via Recife, Brazil. They never made it. On April 17th, the German raider "Atlantis" sunk their ship near the African coast.

My name is Dr. David Henderson. You may know me from my OLLI talks on economics; but, this semester, I invite you to hear the incredible story of my Uncle Fred and Aunt Jamie and their harrowing, seven-year odyssey across four continents. The odyssey included house arrest in Berlin, two POW camps, and a valiant escape into Switzerland.
