German WWII POW presentation Thursday
"From Fatherland to Farmland: German POWs in the Great Plains," a presentation and discussion by Matthew Thompson, will begin at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Senior Center of Finney County, 907 N. 10th St.
Thompson is the registrar at the Dwight D. Eisenhower Presidential Museum, where his duties include collections management, exhibit development and educational outreach.
He will discuss the POW camps in rural Kansas that housed many of the German soldiers captured by the Allies during World War II and sent to the United States to perform agricultural labor.
The presentation is part of the Kansas Humanities Council's "The Way We Worked" Speakers Bureau, featuring presentations examining the theme of work and working in Kansas and how these stories help define us.
