Meet the minds behind MAGNETO TESTAMENT

From the Simon Wiesenthal Center's official announcement:

Please join us TONIGHT for a conversation with GREG PAK and WARREN SIMONS
Author and Editor of X-MEN: MAGNETO TESTAMENT

Moderated by Mark Weitzman
(SWC Director of Government Affairs and Historical Consultant to X-Men: Magneto Testament)

Today, the whole world knows him as Magneto, the most radical champion of mutant rights that the world has ever seen. But in 1935, he was just another schoolboy - who happened to be Jewish in Nazi Germany. The definitive origin story of one of Marvel's greatest icons begins with a silver chain and a crush on a girl - and quickly turns into a harrowing struggle for survival against the inexorable machinery of Hitler's Final Solution.
