Luther College Woman's Club April Meeting
Some 400,000 German prisoners lived in more than 500 camps throughout the United States during World War II. One of those was Max Fabricius, a German soldier captured in May 1943 and brought as a POW to Kansas, where he stayed until being returned to Germany after World War II ended. Learn more about Max Fabricius from his daughter, Renate (Fabricius) Hunter, a 1974 Luther College graduate, at the next meeting of the Luther College Woman’s Club.
Hunter will present “Max Fabricius, POW Camp Survivor” at the group’s April meeting, to be held Tuesday, April 16, at 1:30 p.m. in Peace Dining Room, Dahl Centennial Union, on the Luther campus. All women from Decorah and surrounding communities are invited to attend. Shuttle service from the Decorah Swimming Pool is available and leaves at 1:10 p.m. In addition to the program, a short business meeting, refreshments, and special music by Luther faculty or students are on the afternoon’s agenda. The group will also recognize Bonnie Warrington, who is completing two years of service as president of the Luther College Woman’s Club, and Paula Carlson, who will retire at the close of the academic year after serving a five-year term as Luther College’s president.
