World War II Stories in Conversation

Join the conversations at HMA Sunday afternoon when WWII veterans and survivors discuss personal experiences. Visitors will move from table to table in the gallery and engage in conversations with some who were involved. The following four men are participating:

  • Charlie Dixon, son-in-law of Harold Edgerton, talks about Doc Edgerton’s reconnaissance work.
  • Rhys Samuel was there at the Battle of Leyte Gulf, the largest naval battle in history.
  • Carl Zwingli was part of a bombing squad stationed in the Aleutian Islands bombarding the islands of northern Japan.
  • Vladmir Khudyakov was a Russian teen involved in the war effort in Moscow during   WWII.

This program is presented in conjunction with the closing day of 1944: A War, The People, A New Museum.
