Evening Book Discussion: Stark Decency

Evening Book Discussion: Stark Decency In-Person

Come join us to discuss the non-fiction book Stark Decency: German Prisoners of War in a New England Village by Allen V. Koop

Book Summary:  "Stark Decency is a window into the events of two vastly different worlds: German combat veterans captured in North Africa and Normandy, and the small New Hampshire logging town which found itself hosting the prison camp. Each side was forced to confront its prejudices and fears, and examine the merits and flaws of its ideology. Then, an astonishing thing happened: in their rural isolation, sharing harsh weather conditions and the pinch of wartime rationing, friendships began to develop. Prisoners and their guards sometimes even worked together to meet the daily pulpwood quotas, and little handmade gifts to the local villagers cemented friendships that continue to this day."
