WWII USAAF Vet and former POW, John Katsaros to speak at Saint Demetrios Church in Camarillo
ADDRESS: 3100 Ponderosa Drive, Camarillo CA 93010
Monday, February 9, 2015, 6:30 pm at Saint Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Camarillo. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend. There is no fee. Our temporary location at the Old Camarillo Library is 3100 Ponderosa Drive, Camarillo, CA 93010. Contact Pam West at the church office: (805) 482-1273 with questions.
Special guest John Katsaros will speak about his harrowing experiences in Europe as a prisoner of war and fugitive aided by the French Resistance after being shot down over Frankfurt, Germany on a bombing mission in WW2. After 60 years of being sworn to secrecy by the US Government, the ban was lifted and Katsaros wrote "Code Burgundy — The Long Escape" about his journey to freedom.
Synopsis: Code Burgundy - The Long Escape is a true story authored by John Katsaros. As a 20-year-old aerial gunner on his 11th bombing mission," Katsaros' B-17 "Man O' War" is shot by enemy aircraft cannon and machine-gun fire. Three crewmen are killed, two engines are blown out and the wing is in flames when the alarm is given to bail out. John, seriously wounded with a splintered right arm, assists his crew mates before bailing out into a free fall from 25,000 feet. Unable to deploy his parachute because the oxygen deprivation at that altitude will kill him, Katsaros must jump, pass out, and hope that he wakes up in time to pull the cord on his chute.
He's further injured on landing and that's only the beginning of his harrowing tale. Twice he is captured by the Gestapo and escapes with the help of the French Resistance. A French Jewish doctor, in hiding from the Gestapo in the cellar of his own clinic, operates on Katsaros and saves his arm and his life.
Weak and weighing 85 pounds after being nursed back from the brink of death, Katsaros must travel over the Pyrenees on foot with his French Resistance guides only to be locked up by the Spanish Constabulary when he reaches Spain.
Throughout his ordeal, the young Greek-American never gives up hope, his Christian faith, or the ideal of freedom that caused him to enlist shortly after Pearl Harbor. Prepare to be stunned and inspired.
