The Stearns History Museum is pleased to welcome Dr. Erika Vora, a local author and professor from St. Cloud State University, to speak at Breakfast Club at 9 a.m. Wednesday, July 10. Enjoy some light refreshments while listening to Dr. Vora discuss her book “Silent No More: Personal Narratives of German Women who Survived WWII Expulsion and Deportation”.
Dr. Vora’s book is a collection of personal narratives of 33 women who were deported from their homes in Romania, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, Poland, and eastern Germany while Nazi Germany was at the height of its power. In the midst of World War II, 15 million German people were expelled from their homes in Eastern-Central Europe. Dr. Vora shares these stories about the largest forced mass migration of the twentieth century from a moving and personal standpoint. Please join us for what is sure to be an eye-opening discussion. Members are free, non-members are $5 for admission.
The American Alliance of Museums accredits the Stearns History Museum and Research Center. It is located at 235 33rd Avenue South in St. Cloud.
