Event description
WCGS invites one and all to a talk by UW History professor Dr. Lynne Taylor.

About this Event

Dr. Taylor will discuss her latest book In the Children's Best Interests: Unaccompanied Refugee Children in Germany, 1945-1952.

Talk description: After the dust settled at the end of WWII, 700,000 displaced persons remained in the American occupation zone in Germany. Among them were 40,000 unaccompanied children - children orphaned or separated from their families by the war. Without legal guardians, these children had no one to protect or advocate for them. For the agencies responsible for their care, they were a complex problem which took years to sort out. Their story still resonates today.

This is a free event open to all. An RSVP is not required to attend the event, but it will provide you with updates and it helps us to plan our event.

The Waterloo Campus Bookstore will be on site with copies of Prof. Taylor's book for purchase.

Learn more about her book here.

Doors open at 6:30pm, event begins at 7:00pm.
