Ideas Sunday - Heinen's Celebrates 90 Years; French Jewish Spy Marthe Cohn; Soul of Philanthropy

For the Heinen family, it all started with meat. 2019 is special to the company, as it marks 90 years since that first store opened, and the organization has been celebrating all year. But do you know the history, or the tenacity, that has enabled these family-owned markets to not only still operate, but to keep thriving?

Marthe Cohn has an incredible story to tell -- a story she kept secret most of her life. Now 99, Cohn has a packed schedule, traveling the world to relate her story of courage and bravery as a French Jew who spied on the Nazis in Germany during World War II.

Plus, new exhibitions at the Cleveland History Center celebrate those who give 'black,' through the stories and images of African-American philanthropists.
