The first Sunday of the month, the Allen County–Fort Wayne Historical Society presents the George R. Mather Sunday Lecture Series. The series consists of a number of informative lectures presented by subject-matter experts, in an effort to educate the community on local history and often to illuminate the role that Allen County people and events have played in the broader scope of national and international affairs.
This month’s lecture is “Bearing Witness: Holocaust through the Eyes of Soldiers,” presented by noted author Kayleen Reusser. Reusser has interviewed hundreds of World War II veterans and will tell stories of the Holocaust through their eyes. Shared will be stories from her three books, We Fought to Win: American World War II Veterans Share Their Stories; They Did It for Honor:
Stories of American World War II Veterans; and We Gave Our Best: American World War II Veterans Tell Their Stories.
