Beth Luers, recently retired Professor of Humanities at Garrett College, will lead the discussion. Also present will be special guests Donna Lorenz Miller, a resident of Garrett County for 20 years, and her mother Helen Abele Lorenz, an American citizen who was interned in Crystal City from the age of 9 11 (1942-45) along with her parents.  In January 1945 they were part of a prisoner exchange and sent to Germany. At the age of 16, Helen returned to America alone.
