Presentation - "From Their Fathers: Children of POWs Share Stories and Artifacts"

Monday, May 27, 2013
1:00 pm
The Stage Door Canteen at The National WWII Museum

Moderated by Robert Miller (Director of the Patton Foundation and author of Hidden Hell: Discovering My Father's POW Diary) this panel will bring together children and grandchildren of men held as prisoners of war during WWII. Like Miller, the Worrell brothers and Debra Miller Yenni rediscovered their fathers while reading their POW diaries. When Bruce and Barry Worrell donated their father's POW diary to the Museum (to be featured in the exhibit), they spoke about getting to know their dad "as a man" through his journal. Debra Miller Yenni, did not grow up with her father, but first learned to know him and understand some of his actions through his diary.  Andrew Gabriel published a book about his beloved grandfather's POW log.  How did the experiences endured by POWs affect their families? How are the sacrifices and efforts of our fathers transferred to or interpreted by the next generation? For more information, call 504-528-1944 x 229.
