W. Michael Blumenthal: Around the World in Eighty Years.
Book Presentation with W. Michael Blumenthal and Michael Naumann
The director of the Jewish Museum Berlin, W. Michael Blumenthal, presents his memoir, a personal record of the first rank. Born in the Weimar Republic, he grew up in Berlin Mitte during the Third Reich and fled the Nazis with his family to the other end of the world, to Shanghai. He emigrated from there to the USA and pursued a career in business and politics, as advisor to President Kennedy and Minister of Finance under President Carter amongst other things. In 1997 he followed the call of his hometown and returned to Berlin.
