The Luxembourg American Cultural Society Presents:
11th ANNUAL CULTURAL CONFERENCE - AUGUST 11, 2017
8:30am Registration / 9:00am - 3:00pm Conference
The years 2014-2018 mark the 100th anniversary of World War I, also called the Great War and the War to End All Wars. Unfortunately, this last title did not hold true, and World War II devastated many parts of our earth over the years 1939-1945. The Cultural Conference of 2017 will be the Luxembourg American Cultural Society’s tribute to the impact of these two world wars on the country of Luxembourg, its citizens as well as the role that Luxembourg-Americans played in them both. A special emphasis will be given to the many touching and incredible stories that resulted from the interaction of Americans, especially Luxembourg Americans, with the people of Luxembourg during their time of crisis.
The Luxembourg American Cultural Society invites the active participation of its members and supporters in the annual cultural conference. There are two ways of providing this involvement:
Furnishing information about Luxembourg Americans who were in the military service during the two World Wars:
An Honor Roll will be created to pay tribute to these individuals who answered the call of their country in time of need. Information should be as complete as possible.
