The first panel for “War’s End: Eyewitness to History,” a symposium commemorating the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II, was composed of eyewitnesses to events at the end of the war who talked about their experiences and the impact of the war on veterans and American society. Following their remarks they answered questions from the audience.

Panelists were: Art Buchwald, nationally syndicated columnist and a World War II Marine veteran; John Dolibois, the last surviving American interrogator from the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials; Yeiichi “Kelly” Kuwayama, a Japanese American who served in the U.S. Army’s 442nd Regimental Combat Team, the “Go for Broke” unit, which received more decorations than any other for their valor in the war’s European Theater; and John Glusman, author of Conduct Under Fire, a book about his father’s experiences as a prisoner of war of the Japanese. The panel was moderated by Tom Wiener, historian for the Veterans History Project and compiler of the book Voices of War. close
