Senior Center presents screening of ‘The Typist’

Published 6:29 pm Saturday, May 17, 2014

“The Typist” is a must-see documentary. The Mower County Senior Center is having a showing at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, May 21, with conversation after.

“The Typist” follows the life and work of Larry Tillemans, the last living clerk-typist from the Nuremberg Trials.

As a sergeant in the U.S. 3rd Army, it was Larry’s duty to document the testimony of victims and perpetrators of the Holocaust — information that deeply affected the young Minnesotan. After years of carrying this emotional burden, Larry decided to share his experiences with as many people as possible, a tireless effort that brought one man’s voice to a world that sometimes struggles to remember the lessons of the past.
