ACE PRESENTS A Daughter’s Discovery: Her Father’s Role in History’s Greatest Treasure Hunt
Susan Fisher Sullam knew very little about her father, Joel Fisher’s war experiences. For 15 years after his death in 1997, boxes of her father’s files sat unopened in her basement until a couple of phone calls prompted her to open them. In them she found hundreds of pages of top secret and classified documents which provided an almost day-by-day diary chronicling his leading role in the recovery of billions of dollars of gold bullion, silver, foreign currency, artwork, and the possessions of Holocaust victims stolen by the Nazis and hidden in the closing days of WWII. Ms. Sullam shares with us the story she discovered of a man who faced enormous odds in his quest to make sure the Nazis would never profit from their crimes. Susan Fisher Sullam is the former communications director for U.S. Senator Benjamin Cardin and now a freelance writer in Baltimore.
