Mower County Senior Center: 'The Typist' sheds light on Nazi trials
"The Typist" is a must-see documentary. The Mower County Senior Center is having a showing on Wednesday at, 3 p.m., with conversation after.
"The Typist" follows the life and work of Larry Tillemans, the last living clerk-typist from the Nuremberg Trials. As a sergeant in the U.S. 3rd Army, it was Larry's duty to document the testimony of victims and perpetrators of the Holocaust — information that deeply affected the young Minnesotan. After years of carrying this emotional burden, Larry decided to share his experiences with as many people as possible, a tireless effort that brought one man's voice to a world that sometimes struggles to remember the lessons of the past.
This powerful documentary was put together by KSMQ, our local public television. Join us for this free viewing on the big screen.
