The Israeli son of Holocaust survivors risked his life to expose the growing threat of Germany’s neo-Nazi movement. Working with the Simon Wiesenthal Center, Svoray went undercover as “Ron Furey,” a Nazi sympathizer and supporter. By ingratiating himself to the members of the neo-Nazi movement, he met key leaders and discovered a vast network of middle class citizens who subscribed to the Nazi platform of racial hatred and superiority and anti-Semitism.
Svoray’s book was made into the critically acclaimed 1995 HBO film, “The Infiltrator.” Entertainment Weekly described the movie as “a stunning piece of work” that “packs the power of a punch to the gut.”
The event, sponsored by the Wake Forest University Student Union, is free and open to the public. For information, call 336-758-4869.
