Tom Childers Lecture

[FREE for Museum Members; $5 for non-members]

The Museum Center at 5ive Points is pleased to welcome Dr. Thomas Childers home to Cleveland during the presentation of the War Memorials Exhibit proudly sponsored by The Bank of Cleveland.

Dr. Childers will be at The Museum Center at 5ive Points on Friday evening, May 12, 6:30 p.m. The public is invited to enjoy the newest temporary exhibit, War Memorials, sponsored by The Bank of Cleveland. Dr. Childers will speak on his book, ‘Soldiers from the War Returning. The Greatest Generation’s Troubled Homecoming from World War II (Houghton Mifflin, 2009)’. Following his talk, Dr. Childers will be participating with the audience in answering questions and open discussion. Museum members and veterans will be admitted free of charge. Others will pay a $5 admission fee.

Dr. Childers graduated from Bradley Central High School in 1964. He was quarterback of the Bradley Bear Football Team and participated in other activities during his high school years. He went to the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and received a Bachelors and Master’s degree. He earned his Ph.D. in History from Harvard University in 1976. That year he joined the faculty of the Department of History at the University of Pennsylvania.

Dr. Childers has received numerous fellowships and awards, including a Fulbright scholarship, the Alexander von Humboldt-Stiftung Research Grant, a fellowship in European Studies Research Grant from the American Council of Learned Societies, and a West European Studies Grant from Harvard University. In addition to teaching at the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Childers has held visiting professorships at Trinity Hall College, Cambridge, Smith College, and Swarthmore College, and he has lectured in London, Oxford, Berlin, Munich and other universities in the United States and Europe.

Dr. Childers is the author and editor of several books on modern German History and the Second World War. He is acclaimed as an authority on Germany and World War II. He has lectured on four of The Great Sources series. Jon Meacham in evaluating ‘Soldiers from the War Returning…” wrote: “In this provocative and eloquent book, Thomas Childers breaks significant new ground by chronicling the hidden history of the emotional toll that World War II exacted on those who fought it, and on those who loved them. I did not think there was anything fresh to say about the defining conflict of the modern world. Childers has proven me wrong---very wrong indeed. This is an important and engaging work.”
