Roundtable Sets Meeting June 21, 2017
The Central Pennsylvania World War II Roundtable will meet on Thursday, July 6, at 7 p.m. at Grace United Methodist Church, 433 E. Main St., Hummelstown.
The speaker will be David Tuck, who was born in Poland, lost his mother when he was six months old, and was raised by his Orthodox Jewish grandparents. When Tuck was 10, in 1939, the Germans invaded Poland. For more than five years after that, Tuck was interned in labor camps throughout Poland and Austria, including a sub-camp of Auschwitz.
