The title sounds unlikely enough: "Rescued From the Reich: How One of Hitler's Soldiers Saved the Lubavitch Rebbe." But it's nonetheless true, and only the tip of the iceberg in the remarkable tale of how one highly decorated Nazi soldier saved the Lubavitcher Rebbe's life. Meet Bryan Mark Rigg, the author, at the Jewish Community Library this evening. Rigg is also the author of "Hitler's Jewish Soldiers: The Untold Story of Nazi Racial Laws and Men of Jewish Descent in the German Military." The event is co-sponsored by the Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles.

7 p.m. 6505 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles. (323) 761-8644.
