A Chance Encounter with Adolf Hitler’s Interpreter

With the demise of many of those who were in military service during World War II, the Highland Park Historical Society has been encouraging area residents who took part in that cataclysmic conflict to speak out about their experiences. While Jeff Stern was too young to have served during the war, in a talk hosted by the Historical Society at the Highland Park Public Library, he tells about his encounter with a man who translated the dictates of the war's most infamous instigator when he talked to foreign leaders.
