SPEAKER: ISABEL VINCENT 

ISABEL VINCENT is an award-winning investigative reporter and author of  seven books. She has spent the last several years combing through  archives in England, Italy, Austria, Germany, Israel and the US to tell  the story of Ida and Louise Cook, two opera fans who befriended some of  the biggest divas and conductors of the 1920s and 1930s. They became  close to Clemens Krauss, Hitler's favorite conductor and the director of  the Munich Opera. It was Krauss who launched them on a secret mission  to save Jewish musicians and opera scholars. The book will be published  this fall by Regnery Publishing.
