Ed Arn Veterans Roundtable May 26 topic is “Liberation”

The Wayne County Historical Society is pleased to present “Liberation” at the Ed Arn Roundtable on May 26, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. in the Schoolhouse.

The subject of this year’s roundtable discussion is the Liberation of Concentration Camps in World War II.  Our panelists are Joe DeLucca of Wooster, Albert Spector of Wooster, and Leo Silberman of Cleveland.

“Joe and Albert were both camp liberators and will share their experiences with us,” said Jeffrey Musselman, organizer of the event. “Leo, on the other hand, is a survivor of Buchenwald Concentration Camp, and will share that perspective.”

Also participating this year will be Jolene Dyer’s class from Wooster High School. They’ve spent this past year studying the Holocaust and have traveled to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. “The students will formulate the questions for the panel discussion,” continued Musselman. “They will also be providing the refreshments. It’s great to see these young people take an active interest in history.”

We invite anyone who had participated in the liberation of Concentration Camps, or had a relative participate, to attend this program and participate in the question and answer session.

Admission is free. Financial sponsors for this year’s event are Service First Title Agency, Ltd., Steven Shapiro, and Taggart Law Firm, LPA.

Each year, in honor of Memorial Day, the Wayne County Historical Society presents the Ed Arn Veterans Roundtable, a moving presentation which gives the audience an opportunity to hear stories from a panel of veterans, told firsthand by the men and women who participated in the nation’s conflicts, who discuss their personal experiences and take questions from the audience.

The Roundtable is organized by Jeffrey D. Musselman of Wooster, a past president of the Society and one of the founders and coordinators of the Roundtable.

Join us for this sure-to-be gripping discussion!
