Marthe Cohn escaped Nazi oppression in France before the Allies liberated the country.  But rather than celebrate the freedom, she chose to enter Germany--potentially lethal for a Jew--to spy for the French in the waning days of the war. 

It's a story she tells in her book Behind Enemy Lines, a story she'll recap in an appearance in Ashland on February 26th.  Marthe Cohn visits The Exchange for an interview about her accomplished and long life.
