Mid-Maine Global Forum - Yearning to Breathe Free: The Immigrant Experience in Maine

April 14, 2017 • 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Location: Waterville Public Library
Join the Mid-Maine Global Forum and the Waterville Public Library for a presentation titled “Yearning to Breathe Free: The Immigrant Experience in Maine” on Friday, April 14, 2017, 12:00 noon. The story of immigrants in Maine is older than the state itself. From Verrazano’s first glimpse of Maine in 1524 on, immigrants have played a key role in shaping Maine and her people. This program, inspired by the 2015 exhibit of the same name, provides an overview of Maine’s immigrant past, and serves as a reminder of the important role that immigrants will play in our future. Presented by Elizabeth Helitzer, Executive Director, Holocaust and Human Rights Center and David Greenham, Program Director, HHRC
