The Freya Connection – with Umi Sinha and Elizabeth Scott
September 29 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Umi and Elizabeth tell an extraordinary and inspiring true story of heroism and adventure.
On 19th August 1942, 24 year-old Flight Sergeant Jack Nissenthall volunteered for one of the most dangerous missions of the Second World War as part of the ill-fated Dieppe Raid - a mission so dangerous that his Canadian bodyguards were ordered to kill him rather than let him fall into enemy hands.
Jack’s story is as astonishing as any wonder tale, with obstacles, hardships and dangers, enemies and unexpected helpers in the darkest moments. Will Jack and his companions succeed in their quest?Sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction.
