Local POW camp to be topic of meeting

Friday’s Lifelong Learning program at Tabor College will feature a historical report by Peggy Goertzen, director and archivist at the Center for Mennonite Brethren Studies. She will present her research on the German prisoners of war who were housed at Peabody during World War II.

The session will begin at 9:45 a.m. in the Heritage Lobby of Shari Flaming Center for the Arts.

Goertzen’s interest in this topic was prompted by beautiful handmade gifts given to her father-in-law, Albert Goertzen, by German POWs.

Admission is $5 at the door or $15 per person and $29 per couple for a full semester.

Participants may enjoy lunch in the college cafeteria after the session for $4.
