The MPC Gram is an email newsletter for collectors of Military Payment Certificates and other military numismatica. This week it contained an announcement for a new book on the Operation Bernhard counterfeits of WWII. I hope to have more information on the book in a future issue. The following is adapted from the MPC Gram and invites interested parties to a book launch event at the upcoming ANA convention.
The Spungen Foundation will celebrate the release of an important new book, Forging Secrets, with a dinner event at this year's World's Fair of Money®. Forging Secrets tells the story of Operation Bernhard, the Nazi counterfeiting scheme which used concentration camp prisoners to forge Bank of England notes in an effort to destabilize the British economy during World War II.
This book is one-of-a-kind, both in look and content. It features a die-cut cover, special insert sleeves for Operation Bernhard notes, and sixteen different authors, aided by an army of researchers, translators, and volunteers. (The sixteen contributors include editor and contributor Joseph E. Boling, James Downey, Ray Feller, Steve Feller, Fred Schwan, Danny Spungen and Kiel Majewski).
This book will expose audiences old and new to the faces and facts inside this secret Nazi scheme. In fact you will be meeting some very incredible people including descendants related to Operation Bernhard.
Your keynote speakers and panelists for the evening will include Charlotte Krüger, granddaughter of Bernhard Krüger, the Nazi SS officer in charge of Operation Bernhard; and Debbie Walter daughter of Hans Walter, one of the forgers of Operation Bernhard.
Space is very limited and an RSVP is requested.
Please RSVP by Wednesday, July 27 by email to Creative Operations Ambassador Mikayla Hoppe (email@example.com)
