On Wednesday, July 22nd, local author Larry Roth will discuss his new novel, “The Nazi Account” at 7:30pm at the Old Bridge Library. This work of historical fiction is based on the true incident of the German government’s hiring of the large, prominent Carl Byoir & Associates public relations firm in 1933. The agency’s task was to promote a positive image of Nazi Germany, promoting the values and aspirations of the “New Germany.” The novel follows the personal struggle of one agency employee who faces the moral dilemma of deciding whether to keep his job and support his family or quit in protest, joining his neighbors on the bread lines. Roth will examine the deep roots of anti-Semitism in the US during that time, and will discuss the emergence of the power and influence public relations firms now wield. Book signings will be held after the presentation. Roth earned a BA in Journalism from the University of South Carolina and worked in public relations for 30 years. Copies of “The Nazi Account” are available at the Library, as well as Amazon.com, BN.com, Kindle and Createspace.com.
