Wartime Liverpool subject of veterans roundtable
The experiences of a young girl in wartime Liverpool, England, will be the topic of Monday's meeting of the Scott Hosier Veterans Roundtable at Autumn Ridge Church, 3611 Salem Road S.W., Rochester.
Barbara Henoch, of Rochester, who was attending school in England when World War II broke out in 1939, will be the speaker. Henoch was born in Tanzania, and at age 7 left to attend boarding school in England. She spent 1939-1940 in Wales, and then moved to Liverpool in early 1941. Because of the war, she was not able to make contact with her parents, who were in Tanzania, after May 1941. Henoch will talk about living under fear of bombing and invasion.
The evening starts with Christmas refreshments at 6 p.m., followed by Christmas music by Jane Belau and the Gonda Singers from 6:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. The Canteen Radio Theater will then present a Fibber McGee and Molly Show, "Christmas Toys," at 7 p.m., followed by Henoch's talk.
Admission is a $5 donation; students are admitted free.
