If you have not yet seen this year's Best Foreign Film, The Counterfeiters, you have missed a great film experience. It is the story of a Jewish master counterfeiter who gets sent to Auschwitz where the Nazis force him to head up a counterfeiting operation to help them win the war. It was based on a true story, and we will be talking with Lawrence Malkin who wrote the book behind the movie, Krueger's Men.
- Lawrence Malkin, author of "Krueger's Men: The Secret Nazi Counterfeit Plot and the Prisoners of Block 19"
- Ed 5/13/08: "Yesterday's show with Lawrence Malkin was good! Although I'm guessing it was not comfortable for you to do as the host (you described it as contentious), as a listener it was good radio! Normally you have a guest on and it's a predictable love fest. Yesterday's guest pushed you WAY outside of your comfort zone, and it was good for you! I SINCERELY hope that you will INTENTIONALLY schedule some guests who disagree with you or have a view other than your own. A break from the love fests is good for the host and the listeners. It spices things up and keeps them interesting."
