German POW camps in the Chicago area | Mr. James Meierhoff

Our speaker for the afternoon comes to us with an astounding range of interests from Mesoamerican archaeology in Belize and Guatemala, fresh from an archaeological dig at Tikal, to historical archaeology.

Mr. Meierhoff will share with us his experience with German POW camps in the Chicago area.
Almost a quarter of a century has passed since the ending of WW II. Faintly remembered aare the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the Battle of the Bulge, or the fact that the Chicago area hosted almost half a million POWs during the war. What were current events are melding into the past. Perhaps Mr. Meierhoff can refresh or memories.

We are delighted and fortunate to have Mr. Meierhoff with us this afternoon. Please welcome Mr. James Meierhoff.

October 26, 2014 Mr. James Meierhoff, World War II POW Camps.
