To commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day, SCSU's Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education is pleased to present the new documentary, "The Typist."
Larry Tillemans, a life-long resident of St. Joseph MN, is featured in the film "The Typist" about his experience as a WWII serviceman who participated in the Nuremburg Trials of Nazi criminals. After years of carrying this emotional burden, Larry decided to share his experiences with as many people as possible, a tireless effort that brought the value of first-person testimony to a world that sometimes struggles to remember the lessons of the past.
The documentary, produced by an award-winning local PBS affiliate KMSQ, includes interviews with SCSU students and Dr. Daniel Wildeson, director of the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education at SCSU. The event is free and open to the public. More information at www.ksmq.org/index.php/programs2/110-the-typist/855-the-typist
