February 12: Memories of World War II
Thursday, February 12th - 2:00-3:30 pm at Holy Names Heritage Center
"Every man, woman and child is a partner" declared President Franklin D. Roosevelt of World War II. This slogan underscores the way in which the conflict shaped the lives of everyone who experienced it. This panel discussion will include memories of universal experiences, such as rationing and blackouts, as well as a New Zealand woman's fear of Japanese invasion, an American girl's connection to the Manhattan Project and a German boy's exposure to firebombing raids.
