Eisenhower Lunch & Learn set for Thursday

Posted May 23, 2020 12:10 PM

ABILENE -- Understanding Icons of Liberation: Bergen-Belsen and Dachau is the topic of the upcoming Eisenhower Presidential Library Lunch & Learn program.

The virtual program is scheduled to begin at noon on Thursday.

Understanding Icons of Liberation: Bergen-Belsen and Dachau will be presented by Dr. Shelly Cline, director of education and historian with the Midwest Center for Holocaust Education.

The scenes captured at Dachau and Bergen-Belsen concentration camps by liberating armies have become iconic representations of the Holocaust in the west. However, these camps did not always exist in the form in which they were found. This session will look at the creation, evolution, and liberation of these sites as well as compare them to places visited by Eisenhower.
