"Aftermath": Photo Exhibit At Paynesville Branch April 9, 8:00 - 9:00 p.m. ONLY
"Aftermath," an exhibit of color images, documents what Midwest soldiers found when they liberated Nazi concentration camps in April and May of 1945. It will be available for viewing at the Paynesville branch of Great River Regional Library (GRRL) from 8:00 - 9:00 p.m. only on Friday, April 9. The library will be closed for library service at 8 p.m., but the building will be open to allow viewing of the photographs in the library's photo gallery.
The "Aftermath" exhibit will coincide with the traveling Buseum exhibit, "Behind Barbed Wire: Midwest POWs in Nazi Germany," which will be parked in front of the Paynesville Public Library from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. April 9. Beginning at 7 p.m., Michael Luick-Thrams will present "Out of Hitler's Reach: The Scattergood Hostel for European Refugees, 1939-43," the compelling story of the 186 exiles Iowa Quaker farmers and college students saved from Nazi terror, a kind of "Schindler's List" on the prairie.
