The Fort Steilacoom campus is back with another week-long series of performances, lectures and panel discussions beginning Monday Oct. 9.

Living Voices will make three multi-media interactive performances on World War II themes. Monday, it’s “Through the Eyes of a Friend,” about the Holocaust experiences of young people. Wednesday they’ll present “Native Vision,” about the experience of Navajos in the 1930s and ’40s, and on Thursday, it’ll be “Within the Silence,” about the Japanese internment.

Three performances are scheduled each morning in the Performance Lounge.

Holocaust survivor Fred Taucher speaks 11 a.m. Tuesday.

The main event is Saturday Oct. 14 with a 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. program featuring panels on women in the military, the U.S. Marine Corps experience, a fighter pilot in Europe, a POW and a sailor from the Pacific Theater.

For more information call Randy Leifson at 253-964-6734.
