Iowa Holocaust Council member and educator, Brad Wilkening, will be presenting Lessons of the Holocaust at Milford Memorial Library on Thursday, September 16, at 2:00 p.m. Wilkening’s presentation focuses on how lessons learned from the Holocaust are still relevant and can be applied in today’s world.
