Mentor Public Library will continue its Battles of World War II series by discussing the Fall of Berlin.
During April and May 1945, the Red Army advanced from the east and slowly strangled the Nazi government and city of Berlin to death
Learn about the last days of the war in Europe, the mysterious end of some major Nazi leaders, and the ways that Berlin’s fall shaped the future of Europe.
The talk will be 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 5, at our Main Branch. The program is free and open to all.
The speaker will be our own reference librarian Dr. John Foster, who earned a doctorate degree in history with a specialization in Modern German History. He has taught topics as diverse as the Holocaust and Napoleon’s rise to power.
