Wars' Voices: Are You Listening?
A presentation by Val Burgess
Thursday, March 30th
12:45 pm
The Southwest Sublette County Pioneers Senior Citizen Center
429 East 1st Street in Marbleton

Stories of World War II are disappearing as veterans of that war pass on. Historian Val Burgess has talked to hundreds of WWII veterans and gathered their stories, thoughts and experience and uses interviews of POWs held in Europe and research on POWs held in the Pacific to share personal stories of the people and history of that war. The program will paint the reality of war and the human experience, revealing the depth and complexity it had on their lives, and offer insight to the extreme and abhorrent conditions they survived while in captivity.

Val Burgess is the director of the Wars’ Voices Foundation, a non-profit organization established to preserve the primary resources (oral histories) of prisoners of war and other veterans of World War II. For the last 20 years Burgess has recorded over 130 oral histories of former American prisoners of war held in Germany at the “Great Escape Camp”, Stalag Luft III. She has spent many years studying the 5th Air Base; American prisoners held on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines. Most recently she has been researching some 300 letters given to her in 2013. This program is provided with a grant from the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund, a program of the Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources. It will be held at the Senior Center in Marbleton.
