Why were some of Germany's leading scientists smuggled into the United States after WWII? Bruce Tucker, from Rutgers' Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, will discuss this top secret operation.

Professor Tucker will lecture on the now declassified story of the secret project of the United States government, known as Operation Paperclip, to locate and smuggle Nazi wartime technology, wonder weapons of mass destruction & hundreds of scientists, engineers, technicians & spies, many of whom were known war criminals, illegally into the United States. 

Operation Paperclip is part of Coffee Time Talks, an educational program series for adults to encourage lifelong learning. Programs run from 11 a.m. to noon, and attendees are encouraged to stay through 1 p.m. to socialize with fellow patrons and enjoy some refreshments.
