Tues, Feb 16—The Daughters of Yalta
February 16, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Join us on February 16th for an exclusive discussion with Catherine Grace Katz, author of The Daughters of Yalta: The Churchills, Roosevelts and Harrimans: A Story of Love and War. The Daughters of Yalta is the untold story of the three accomplished daughters who accompanied their famous fathers to the Yalta conference in February of 1945, the final meeting of the “Big Three” of WWII. Catherine Grace Katz also provides a new look at the fate of Poles and Poland, which remains the most controversial aspect of the Yalta conference.
Catherine Grace Katz is a writer and historian from Chicago. The Daughters of Yalta is her first book. She graduated from Harvard in 2013 with a BA in History and received her MPhil in Modern European History from Christ’s College, University of Cambridge in 2014, where she wrote her dissertation on the origins of modern counterintelligence practices.

She is currently pursuing her JD at Harvard Law School.
