"Freedom from Fear:
And Why it Still Matters Today"

with Maria Höhn
Location: Henry A. Wallace Center
Time: 7:00 p.m.
REGISTER

The Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum will host a workshop "Freedom from Fear: And Why it Still Matters Today" with Vassar College Professor of History Maria Höhn on Wednesday, October 10, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. Program partners include the Dutchess County Commission on Human Rights, Eleanor Roosevelt Center at Val-Kill, United Nations Association and the Roosevelt-Vanderbilt-Van Buren National Historic Sites. This workshop explores "Freedom from Fear" from when it was declared in January 1941 in light of the Nazi menace -- and after 1945 when it served as a statement of American principles against the Soviet Union during the Cold War -- and connects the right to some of the larger global challenges today like forced migration and refugee crises. The event will be held in the Henry A. Wallace Center at the FDR Presidential Library and Home.
