Marianne Stecher-Hansen sheds light on a World War II artifact at the National Nordic Museum as well as her recent book Nordic War Stories, 2021.

About the Series:
Co-presented with the University of Washington's Department of Scandinavian Studies, this latest iteration of our popular Scand30 series uses one object in the Museum's collection as a point of departure for the speaker's topic. These short, snappy talks are delivered by University of Washington faculty and reflect current research. A light reception will follow the presentation.
