Prologue: "West Germany and Israel" with Author Dr. Carole Fink


Monday, April 8th

The MC Erny Gallery

On Monday, April 8th, at NOON in the MC Erny Gallery, Ben Steelman of Wilmington's StarNews will sit down with author Carole Fink, a former UNCW history professor and professor emeritus at Ohio State. She'll discuss her latest book, "West Germany and Israel," a look at West German-Israeli relations in the era of Golda Meir and Willie Brandt. It might sound technical, but it's truly fascinating. See Ben Steelman's coverage for more details.
