Roger Cohen to Speak at UofM


New York Times and International Herald Tribune columnist, Roger Cohen, will be speaking at the University of Michigan on Monday, February 6th at 6:00p.m. in the Rogel Ballroom of the Michigan Union. The Union is located at 530 South State Street. Cohen’s discussion will focus on how closely Israel has adhered to its ideals in the 63 years since it was founded as the Jewish state. The talk is part of a symposium entitled, “Up Against a Wall: Israel in a Changing Middle East.”

In addition to his journalistic works, Cohen is also the author of three books: Hearts Grown Brutal: Sagas of Sarajevo, Soldiers and Slaves: American POWs Trapped by the Nazis’ Final Gamble, and In the Eye of the Storm, a biography he co-authored about the life of General Norman Schwarzkopf.
