Chats On the Past: Sigrid Schultz, the Chicago Tribune, and the Third Reich

n conjunction with our exhibit “Dragon Lady” about the life of pioneering reporter Sigrid Schultz, Westport Museum will host Schultz expert Dr. David Milne of the University of East Anglia for a live discussion about the journalist’s life. Dr. Milne will present the material he has amassed on Schultz while writing her biography for Oxford University Press. Born in Chicago in 1893, war correspondent Schultz served as Bureau Chief for Central Europe at The Chicago Tribune in the years leading up to World War II. Fluent in German, Schultz was stationed in Berlin where she witnessed the rise of the country’s National Socialism (Nazi) Party and was acutely aware of the danger the party and its leader, Adolf Hitler, posed to the world. Filing her most sensitive stories from various European cities under a pseudonym so as not to jeopardize her entrée behind the scenes of the Third Reich, Schultz was a masterful investigative reporter, and her dispatches provided critical intelligence about Germany’s wartime plans.… Category: Community.

Pages Through the Ages: “A Fatal Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum”

This is a cultural history of murder in Ancient Rome. In Ancient Rome all the best stories have one thing in common – murder. Romulus killed Remus to found the city; Caesar was assassinated to save the Republic. Caligula was butchered in the theatre, Claudius was poisoned at dinner and Galba was beheaded in the forum. In one fifty-year period, twenty-six emperors were murdered. But what did killing mean in a city where gladiators fought to the death to sate a crowd? Emma Southon examines real-life homicides from Roman history to explore how perpetrator, victim and the act itself were regarded by ordinary people. Inside Ancient Rome’s unique culture of crime and punishment, we see how the Romans viewed life, death, and what it means to be human. Read a review. Pages Through the Ages is a book discussion group hosted jointly by the Westport Museum for History and Culture and the Library. Discuss Emma Southon’s A Fatal Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum with Bruce McGuirk and other history buffs. M… Category: Community. History. Lectures, Presentations, Workshops. Literature.

Environmental Book Discussion: ALL WE CAN SAVE

Join members of the Earthplace naturalist team in discussing topics of environmental issues, sustainability, nature or science. This month's book is All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis edited by Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Dr. Katharine K. Wilkinson. Named one of the best books of the year by Smithsonian Magazine! There is a renaissance blooming in the climate movement: leadership that is more characteristically feminine and more faithfully feminist, rooted in compassion, connection, creativity, and collaboration. While it’s clear that women and girls are vital voices and agents of change for this planet, they are too often missing from the proverbial table. More than a problem of bias, it’s a dynamic that sets us up for failure. To change everything, we need everyone. This event is scheduled to be at Earthplace, 10 Woodside Lane. Reservations are suggested for this in-person event. Copies of the book are available at the patron service desk at the Westport Library. Category: Community. Environmental Meetings. History.
