In-Person Meeting: Book talk—The Enchanted Suitcase: A Window Onto My German Father’s World War II Life

February 26, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Helga Warren will speak on her newly published book, inspired by stumbling upon her German father’s memoirs of World War II—a striking account of his journey to Paris, Normandy, a POW camp in Alabama, and to a new life as an American.  Her discovery unveiled one of the few firsthand accounts of the German POW experience in America, but also a new perspective on the father she thought she knew.

*This program will be presented in person at Pohick Regional Library.  No registration is required.*
