We are so proud with how our first ever Mid-Day Muster went yesterday!
We were delighted to see so many members in attendance, attentively listening to Dr. Havers present upon his dissertation. Our Assistant Director of Development, Linda Sterling, gave a brief introduction to the event in which she thanked members for the attendance and walked everyone through this new type of programming. She was followed by Dr. Havers’ discussion, which lasted around 25 minutes, and focused on the Japanese POW experience, specifically within the Changi POW Camp from 1942-1945, which was an outlier in the typical POW experience of the time.
We look forward to our next Mid-Day Muster with Education Outreach Coordinator at the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center, Jessica Hulton. Hulton’s discussion will take place on Tuesday, April 21st and will focus on the Holocaust and liberation efforts that took place following World War II.
