    ‘The Typist’ St Cloud Screening - A public screening of the documentary film The Typist, which depicts the experiences of a Minnesota soldier at the Nuremberg Trials, is scheduled at the Stearns History Museum on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Monday, April 28th at 7:00 p.m. Dr. Daniel Wildeson, Professor in the Department of Communication Studies at St. Cloud State University, will assist Mr. Tillemans in the evening’s presentation.

    The Typist follows the life and work of Larry Tillemans of Sartell, believed to be the last living clerk-typist at the Nuremberg Trials, which were conducted in Germany immediately after World War II to judge Nazi war criminals. As a sergeant in the U.S. 3rd Army, it was Tillman’s duty to document the testimonies of victims and perpetrators of the Holocaust. Later in life, Tillemans made it a personal mission to share his knowledge and experiences about the Trials with as many people as possible, leaving him to speak at more than 450 public events throughout Minnesota over the past 20 years.

    The Typist was produced by KSMQ Public Television of Austin Minnesota, which serves southern Minnesota and northern Iowa. The film is part of KSQM’s work to document and celebrate Minnesota history, arts, and cultures.

    The internationally recognized date for Holocaust Remembrance Day corresponds to the 27th day of Nisan on the Hebrew calendar. It marks the anniversary of the Warsaw ghetto uprising. In Hebrew, Holocaust Remembrance Day is called Yom Hashoah.

    This presentation is free to Stearns History Museum members and $7 for non-members.
