Learn about life after wartime for WWII veterans
Learn about life after World War II from a veteran and local historian during a special program on April 10.
We’ve hosted several programs about World War II over the last few years—both its major battles and the conditions that precipitated it.
Now, we’ll examine what life was like for veterans when they returned from war during a special program at 7 p.m. on Monday, April 10, at our Main Branch.
The speakers will be WWII veteran Bob Zonneville—the recipient of a Bronze Star and two Purple Hearts—and local historian Thom Matowitz, who literally wrote the book on Mentor.
They will share stories about what it was like to come back from war and how veterans worked to rebuild their lives in peacetime.
The program is free and open to everyone. However, we do ask that you sign up beforehand. You can register online or by calling us at 440-255-8811 ext. 216.
