Webinar: The Secret WWII Concentration Camp Diary of Odd Nansen by Author Timothy Boyce - 09.24.2020




GET TO KNOW ODD NANSEN'S CONCENTRATION CAMP LIFE

Hailed by The New Yorker as “among the most compelling documents to come out of the war,” the book From Day to Day, a World War II concentration camp diary was secretly written during his imprisonment by Norwegian Odd Nansen, son of polar explorer and humanitarian Fridtjof Nansen (Nobel Peace Prize, 1922). Nansen had been arrested in January 1942 and held captive for three and a half years in various Nazi camps in Norway and Germany. This inspiring diary brilliantly illuminates Nansen’s daily struggle, to survive, to preserve his sanity and to maintain his humanity.


After having been out of print for over 60 years, Timothy Boyce rescued the diary from oblivion after having read the memoir of another Holocaust survivor who, as a 10 year-old boy, was saved by Nansen while both were prisoners in

Sachsenhausen.



Timothy Boyce practiced law for many years, most recently serving as the Managing Partner of the Charlotte, NC office of Dechert LLP, a global law firm with offices in 13 countries. He holds an MBA from The Wharton School of Finance, and a JD from the University of Pennsylvania Law School. He received a BS in Foreign Service from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service. Tim currently lives in Tryon, NC with his wife Tara, two horses, two dogs, two cats, and almost 5,000 books. He retired in 2014 to devote full time to writing.
