Soldiers Without Guns: Women Defense Workers of WWII
Date(s) - 03/21/2017
Allentown First Aid Building
The setting: It is 1943 and your organization is hosting a meeting to promote war work for women. Hear a testimonial from Rosie Niemiec (historical interpreter Stacy Flora Roth), a housewife who decided to do her bit for the war effort (and surprise her husband) by taking a job as a welder in a shipyard. This unique presentation features a character monologue, a display of period artifacts and ephemera, a discussion of womens participation on the Homefront, and an invitation to the audience to share memories, memorabilia, and personal and family stories of the Second World War.
