Print | Front Page | Email this story

MURFREESBORO (AP) — A Holocaust survivor who helped craft The Washington Post's Watergate coverage is giving a free public talk in Murfreesboro.

Harry Rosenfeld will discuss his book "From Kristallnacht to Watergate: Memoirs of a Newspaperman" on Wednesday at Middle Tennessee State University.

According to the school, Rosenfeld was only 9 years old in 1938, when his father was taken by Nazis in the middle of the night. The family later escaped to America where Rosenfeld worked at the New York Herald Tribune until its closure in 1966.

At The Washington Post, Rosenfeld helped keep a young Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein on course as they exposed the scandal that would lead to President Richard Nixon's resignation.

Now editor-at-large for the Albany Times-Union, Rosenfeld will answer questions from the audience after the presentation.
