At Chabad Jewish Community Center

Ninety-four year old Holocaust survivor Marthe Cohn became a member of the intelligence service of the French First Army and was able to retrieve inside information about Nazi troop movements by slipping behind enemy lines.

At age 80, Marthe was awarded France's highest military honor, the Medaille Militaire, joining the likes of Winston Churchill and other outstanding wartime heroes. The award officially acknowledged the heroic exploits of a beautiful young Jewish woman who faced death every day as she sought to help defeat the Nazi empire. At the time of the award, not even her children knew the extent of her service.

In 2002, Marthe published a memoir, "Behind Enemy Lines: The True Story of a French Jewish Spy in Nazi Germany."
