Author Gregory Sumner, PhD, Professor of History at the University of Detroit Mercy, will commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day by discussing his book, Michigan POW Camps in WWII. It tells the story of the 6,000 German and Italian prisoners who lived in the state between 1943 and 1946, most of whom behaved well, labored hard at agricultural and public works jobs and made friends of their American custodians.
