Traces WWII Museum, 2009 Buseum Tour "Held in the Heartland", stops in Hartland Michigan, Memorial Day 2009. Between 1943-46 the Midwest, USA was home to approx. 250 prisoner of war camps. Tens of thousands of the 380,000 German POWs imprisoned across the U.S. during WWII were held in the Heartland. The Buseum with bus tour guide, Irving Kellman, tells the story of these prisoners of war which embody ageless and timely themes of war and peace, justice during times of war, human rights, international reconciliation, potential lessons for avoiding future conflicts and the big benefits to America from treating foreign POWs as you would want your own soldiers treated. WWII USA POW and author, A.J. Dobek signed copies of his book "One Slow High Flying Target Survivor" at the Hartland Memorial Day Event with all proceeds going to Traces WWII Museum. Ark Distribution produced this short film. For more information, visit the non-profit WWII educational organization "Traces" at: www.Traces.org
