The American Way: A True Story of Nazi Escape, Superman, and Marilyn Monroe

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage-- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

Family lore had it that author Bonnie Siegler’s grandfather Jules crossed paths with Marilyn Monroe in Midtown Manhattan late one night in 1954, her white dress flying up around her as she filmed a scene for The Seven Year Itch. Siegler wasn’t sure she quite believed her grandfather’s story…until, cleaning out his apartment, she found the film reel. That discovery would prompt her to investigate her grandfather’s seemingly-tall tales — and lead her in pursuit of a remarkable, poignant piece of forgotten history, bridging old Hollywood, the birth of the comic book, and the Holocaust. The American Way is a kaleidoscopic tale of hope and reinvention, of daring escapes and fake identities, of big dreams and the magic of movies, and what it means to be a real-life Superman.

Authors of The American Way, Bonnie Siegler and Helene Stapinski, will be joined in conversation by NY Times contributor Bob Morris. There will be a book signing after the event.
