A World War II Story through Sketches

In honor of World War II veterans, Janet de Vries will share “A World War II Story through Sketches.”  Janet’s father S. Sgt. Jacob John de Vries served in the US Army 103rd Infantry (Cactus) Division in Europe and First Allied Air Bourne Army occupying forces in Berlin.  Even before his formal art training, de Vries was always sketching, including during his four years in the Army. This program explores a World War II story through his sketches of people, landscapes and churches in France, Austria and Germany in 1944-45.
