The general public are invited to hear the compelling and remarkable life story of Dr. Bernd Wollschlaeger - the son of a decorated Nazi tank commander.
As a teenager, Dr. Wollschlaeger became aware of his father's dark past during World War II. The unresolved conflict with his father combined with his father's complete denial of any wrongdoing motivated Dr. Wollschlaeger to search for answers. Driven by a curiosity to learn the truth about the Holocaust, he studied and explored Judaism, ultimately becoming a Jew by choice. He emigrated to Israel and served in the IDF.
Dr. Wollschlaeger now lives with his family in Miami where he is a practicing physician. He is the author of 5 books, including "A German Life: Against all Odds Change is Possible".
