Throughout World War II in Europe, all serving overseas were treated to the radio broadcasts of “Axis Sally,” an American who broadcast continuous appealing propaganda over German radio.  She was the American voice of Nazi Germany and her name was Mildred Gillars.  Author Lucas, who has researched and documented  Gillar’s career, relates the life and times of this infamous broadcaster, detailing in particular her relationship with Hitler’s Nazi regime and her subsequent trial for treason after the war.

Lubetkin Global Communications is pleased to be producing video podcasts from many of the Center’s lectures this year. The productions continue a collaboration that dates back nearly 40 years between Steve Lubetkin and the Center’s director, Prof. Paul Zigo. As a student broadcaster at Monmouth College in the 1970s, Steve provided production support to Paul’s weekly radio program, “Speaking of Monmouth.”

This program series is seeking corporate sponsorship support, either for individual programs in the series or as a presenting sponsor for the entire lecture schedule.
