Baltimore Journalist Susan Fisher Sullam will tell the fascinating story of her discovery of her father’s role in “Task Force Fisher”. As a member of General Dwight Eisenhower’s staff during World War II, Lt. Commander Joel Fisher kept records detailing one of the greatest treasure hunts in history. His documents, found by his daughter after his death, chronicled how Fisher led a task force during the closing month of the war that located and recovered billions of dollars’ worth of gold, silver, currency and artwork looted by the Nazis.
