GUEST SPEAKER / PROGRAM:  Harry Cooper, Author & Adventurer

Topic:  Hitler in Argentina

Former professional race car driver, Chicagoan Harry Cooper hung up his helmet and left the world of speed to live aboard his boat in the Bahamas.  It was during his Bahamas years that he discovered an island plantation that gave fresh food and water to German U-Boats in the war.

Upon his return to Chicago, he dug into this history full time for more than three decades and is now the world's foremost authority on the history of the German U-Boats.

While in deep research of the U-Boats, Harry learned of the mass exodus of thousands from the crumbled Third Reich - including Adolf Hitler, Eva Braun, Martin Bormann and thousands of other important people.  It is all in the book "Hitler in Argentina."
