Written by Andrew-Rossi on March 7, 2017
A presentation of stories from World War II prisoners of war will be traveling around the Big Horn Basin in the next few weeks.
Historian Val Burgess has spent 23 years interviewing hundreds of former prisoners of war and researching personal stories from the families of prisoners. Burgess says that her presentation sheds light on the reasons for war, and the human side of the largest war in world history.
Burgess will present multiple public and school programs entitled, History Speaks ~ are We Listening? She will be at the Washakie County Library in Worland at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday the 14th, at the Meeteetse Museums on Wednesday the 15th at 7 p.m., and at the Ten Sleep Senior Center on Thursday the 16th at 6:30 p.m. She will also be at Powell High School on Monday, March 13th, the next day at Worland High School, and at Meeteetse High School on Wednesday, March 15th.
