Our newest special exhibit from the Forefather Series is up! The WWI story of a baker in the Navy was a big hit. This time around, we want to share the story of a Jewish American soldier who helped waterproof vehicles for the landing at Normandy and then witnessed the liberation of Buchenwald. Irving Fischer's story is one you won't forget. His photographs tell a story of the Holocaust's aftermath from his perspective and a life thriving in Colorado after the war. We hope you'll stop by to see this exhibit during its two month run.
The Veterans Museum participation at the Front Range Community College's Third Annual History Conference consisted of a table display in the main portion of the library, and Bob Moulder's presentation, "Civil War in the West." David Jamiel had been scheduled to do a talk as well, but was a bit under the weather. Instead, he and Shirley set up their Mormon Battalion display on an adjacent table and engaged people throughout the day. Bob's presentation went very well, and David and Shirley were very busy most of the day talking with interested visitors at the table.
