 Ace Presents: 

 The Nazi Officer's Wife

The Nazi Officer's Wife is the story of a Jewish woman in 1930's Vienna, who with the help of friends, moved to Munich, hid her identity and married Nazi Party member, thus saving her life. In this fascinating story, Angela Schluter tells the story of her mother's life as the Nazi Officer's Wife and her own story of her upbringing as arguably the only Jew born in an Aryan hospital during the war.

 ACE Presents: "Paradise in Peril"

Florida with its warm weather, sandy beaches and blue green water is often referred to as a "Paradise". In recent history however, "Paradise" has been in peril. During WWII, thousands of soldiers passed through, trained, or recuperated from wounds here. This program spotlights Palm Beach County and its residents, including the "Puddle Jumpers" of Lantana, men and women who risked their lives flying small, civilian land-based planes to hunt German U-boats off the Florida coast, and played an important role in the war effort.

Speaker: Richard A. Marconi, is the Curator of Education at the Palm Beach Historical Society. He is the author of the book, Palm Beach, Then and Now, a pictorial book which illustrates the shifts in Palm Beach's architectural landscape over the decades. He also coauthored the book Palm Beach for the images of America series.

What Does It Mean to Be Pro- Israel? 

J Street, a liberal advocacy organization, presents itself to be pro- Israel and pro- peace. Its message that Israel must do more to achieve peace has created a great deal of controversy. The J Street Challenge is a critical look at the group. Watch the movie and join us for a post screening discussion with local pro-Israel advocates.

Thinking Like a Scientist

“Thinking like a scientist” means believing that there are answers to your questions, and that you are capable of pursuing those answers. Using neuroscience, Dr. Corlew will discuss why an understanding of STEM is increasingly important and empowering, and more accessible than ever
before. She’ll use your own brain to show you why science needs your participation.

Speaker: Rebekah Corlew, Ph.D. In addition to her research, Dr. Corlew has always been passionate about increasing the public’s
understanding of neuroscience and mentoring future scientists. Dr. Corlew holds a Ph.D. in Neurobiology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She has worked as a research scientist for over six years at Duke University and Max Planck Florida investigating how the brain forms connections during very early development. Dr. Corlew’s presentation is followed by an open Q&A session, providing everyone with a unique opportunity to meet Dr. Corlew in person.
