30705 Looking Back and Understanding the Impact: Living in Europe during WWII   NEW!

Millions of people today are living in war zones. Many migrate to other countries. OLLI members who had this experience during WWII are invited to meet to look back, to reflect on the impact of living in Europe during WWII and migrating to a new world. What is the lifelong impact of this experience?

Looking back 75 years, how do war experiences in childhood impact a person’s values and how they see the world? How do war experiences compare with other traumas? This course is a little bit of history, but most, it’s an opportunity to explore and share the impact of war on a person’s subsequent life experience.
