Meet Author Dr. Danny Cohen

Danny will answer questions and talk about why and how he wrote TRAIN, a thriller, set in 1943, that gives voice to the unheard victims of Nazism— the Roma, the disabled, homosexuals, intermarried Jews, and political enemies of the Nazi regime.

TRAIN was selected as the inaugural text of the ‘Museum Teacher Fellowship’ bookclub of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

If you would like to read the book prior to the event, TRAIN is available in paperback and on Kindle:
