The talk by Jan Jessen will focus on the fear of war and its consequences for Danish policy and society. The lecture is presented in conjunction with the library exhibit “Danish Children Growing Up American,” which is also co-sponsored by DAAL.
The lecture and reception that follows are free and open to the public. Attendees will receive a free copy of the book “War Games” by Torben Tvorup Christensen and Lucille Wilder about Denmark on the eve of the Nazi invasion in 1940.
About the Danish American Archive and Library
The DAAL has antecedents in the earlier archives of the United Danish Evangelical Lutheran Church and of Dana College—each of which essentially was institutional. Since 1986 a new archive has emerged with its emphasis being ethnic, rather than institutional. In 2011 it was formally incorporated as the Danish American Archive and Library, a 501 (C)(3) corporation. DAAL is located in Blair, Nebraska.
