Met with Abe Shragge yesterday at the San Diego Veterans Museum.
I gave them the slips of paper the veterans filled out for me, describing what it felt like to be liberated from a prisoner of war camp. The museum will keep these historical documents, which are very powerful. I can only imagine what it would be like to be imprisoned, starved, brutilized and then be freed.
If the sculpture can fit thru the doors, and all the approvals happen, the Vets will unveil “Liberation” (sans base) Saturday, Feb 27th at this beautiful museum in Balboa Park, San Diego. Later it will be moved to the new Cemetery, under construction.
