Rendezvous Info

Tickets: Free! No registration required.

Briefing

When 26 Army nurses and medics—part of the 807th Medical Air Evacuation Transport Squadron—boarded a transport plane in November, 1943, they never anticipated the crash landing in Nazi-occupied Albania that would lead to their months-long struggle for survival.  The group dodged bullets and battled blinding winter storms as they climbed mountains and fought to survive, aided by courageous villagers who risked death at Nazi hands as well as Britain’s Special Operations Executive (SOE) and the American OSS.  Join author Cate Lineberry, a former writer and editor for Smithsonian Magazine, for this mesmerizing tale of World War II courage and heroism.
