Public House Night School: Victor Grossman direct from Berlin, Germany, Sunday June 15, 6pm

You’re invited to join us as part of the free Night School at the Public House, 815 E. Locust for very topical insights from today’s united Germany and a first-hand alternative view of the Cold War, by commentator Victor Grossman. A Jewish American leftist who fled the US army at the height of McCarthy period, and then lived and worked in the [East] German Democratic Republic for many years, Grossman helped expose the high positions held by former nazis in post war Germany, and his detailed May 5th article analyzing the EU from a left perspective & reviewing in 11 nations the rise of the hard right just prior to the recent EU elections, is attached. (For context & the US connections, see

Pete Seeger called Grossman’s memoir “an extraordinarily honest book. Anyone wanting to know the close-up story of the Cold War should read it.” Written by the only graduate of both Harvard and Karl Marx University (Leipzig), Crossing the River (Univ. of Mass. Press) is now available at People’s Books Co-op, 804 E. Center (414) 962-0575. A few copies of his books in German, on the Spanish Civil War and progressive American women will also be available at the program on Sunday.
