The Chabad Jewish Center of Petaluma will host Holocaust survivor Marthe Cohn on Tuesday, February 5, at 7 p.m. at Petaluma’s Santa Rosa Junior College campus, in memory of the 80th anniversary of “Kristallnacht.” Tickets are available at www.jewishpetaluma.com. Kristallnacht was the infamous night in 1938 when Nazis took to the streets of Germany, vandalizing Jewish homes, schools, and businesses, torching synagogues, and arresting and murdering Jews simply for being Jewish. Marthe Cohn’s book “Behind Enemy Lines” is her incredible story of suffering, bravery, and determination through not only the Nazi invasion and occupation of her home country of France, but also her work as a nurse in the Far East after the war, as the Vietnamese and French went to war. Now 98 years old, this event is a chance to meet a living legend, war hero, and proud member of the Jewish community.

A mysterious patient is wheeled in for “Literary Surgery” by an eccentric group of nurses who bicker over his treatment, occasionally expressing themselves through song. In the bizarre, timeless hospital, the doctor reveals that the afflicted poet is William Shakespeare. To restore him to health and sanity, fragments of his plays are performed through dance, music and a slow-motion broadsword melee choreographed by Marty Pistone.

The heart of the Petaluma area crab feed season starts up in January and continues through until March, ending with a bang at Heidrun Meadery’s incredible feed, run by Chef Matt Elias and Laine Ayre of the Bodega food truck. Keep in mind when attending a crab feed that they are usually the primary fundraisers for area non-profits, are run by volunteers, and often sell out.

Blissfully unaware that their home is being undermined by Nazi ideology of antagonism toward anything “other,” the residents of Berlin revel in playful night life and quiet romances. Political tension builds, turning friends against each other, and culminating in a chilling transition into Nazi controlled Germany.
