“In the Dark Streets: Christmas 1941 / The Glad Tidings 1945”- Speaker: Judith Geer
In 1941, the United States was basically an isolationist nation. On December 7th of that year, it was plunged into World War II, changing it forever. By 1945, our country was looked to for sustenance by a world severely broken by six years of the most devastating war in history, and a new world power was born. The changes within that power structure during the war years are especially noteworthy, and by taking one usual happy time of year – the Christmas season – the depth of those changes can be illustrated.
Doors open at 5:30pm, with the presentation starting at 6:30pm. Pizza, snacks and refreshments will be available. We’ll also have a 50-50 split club drawing to benefit the Museum. The Railroad and Steel Plant Museums will be open before, during, and after the presentation. Admission is free, but donations are gratefully accepted!
Please park in the lot at the rear of the Heritage DiscoveRY Center Buffalo at 100 Lee St., and enter through the middle rear door. Wheelchair access is via the front doors on Lee St.
