He was Bob Woodward’s and Carl Bernstein’s boss and in charge of the paper’s Watergate expose. His talk is part of the University Lecture series at the JCC in Scotch Plains. This seems a wonderful opportunity hear directly from someone who was part of extraordinary historical events. There is a fee -- $16/person. It is anticipated that you will be able to register at the door though the JCC would like a head county ahead of time.
Here is the description from the JCC site (http://www.jccnj.org/index.php?src=events&category=default&srctype=detail&category=default&refno=327):
Rosenfeld tells of growing up in Hitler’s Berlin where he saw his father taken away by the Gestapo and witnessed the burning of his synagogue on Kristallnacht, the prelude to the Holocaust. Rosenfeld’s family found refuge in America where he grew up to become a hard-driving editor at The New York Herald Tribune and The Washington Post where he was Bob Woodward’s and Carl Bernstein’s boss and in charge of the paper’s Watergate expose. He offers an insider’s perspective on the Bernstein and Woodward partnership and depicts the tensions and pleasures of working for Ben Bradlee and Katherine Graham.
