World War II Milwaukee

Wednesday, February 13, 2019

Long before Japanese bombs rained down on Pearl Harbor, Milwaukee was the "Machine Shop to the World." Thanks to the city's large industrial base, its factories played a vital role in mobilizing the country for war. Even further, locals sacrificed their lives for the cause--Mayor Carl Zeidler went missing at sea, USS Arizona captain Franklin Van Valkenburgh refused to leave the bridge of his burning battleship, and Mildred Harnack joined the Nazi resistance movement and was executed on direct orders from Hitler. Meg Jones, author of World War II Milwaukee, highlights these fascinating stories and more with this free program. No registration required.
