United States in WWII: Perspectives on History with a Modern-Day Context: Great Britain, Germany, and the Start of the WW II in Europe

September 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


As Prime Minister of Great Britain during the 1930’s, Neville Chamberlain desperately hoped to avoid conflict with Nazi Germany. Remembered for his pre-war negotiations with Hitler, Chamberlain’s tragic legacy is one of naïve appeasement.

Presented by Arthur Gottlieb, LCSW, CSA. Art Gottlieb is a local historian on subjects of political and military history. He was formerly a professional curator of naval history and the Technical Director of Exhibits at the Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum in New York City. In these roles, Mr. Gottlieb worked regularly with veterans of all services towards the creation of exhibits accurately illustrating the history of 20th century warfare. Mr. Gottlieb maintains a private practice as a Counselor and Certified Senior Advisor in Norwalk, CT, and offers Pro Bono counseling services to soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.
