Clarence Adams will share his experience as a World War II POW during a special discussion at The Contemporary Club on Friday, August 3.
Adams was born in Wakefield, England, and after being drafted into the British military in 1939, was shipped off to France. Adams was one of the men left behind following the Dunkirk evacuation in 1940, and after being captured by German soldiers, spent five years as a prisoner of war in Nazi Germany.
Adams, who celebrated his 100th birthday on July 27, will be interviewed by A.K. Smiley Public Library Director Don McCue. The event will run from 10 to 11 a.m., and is free and open to the public.
