Dinner with a Curator
Tom Czekanski presents “Thinking Outside the Box: German Problem Solving in WWII”
The Solomon Victory Theater Atrium
Tuesday, October 16, 2012
6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
In the second of our new Dinner with a Curator seasonal series, Director of Collections and Exhibits, Tom Czekanski, discusses the Germans’ innovative approaches to complex problems in modern warfare. Although Germany’s solutions did not lead to victory, they did prolong the war by providing more resources than would otherwise have been available. Examples of wartime ingenuity included the integration of captured weapons into the German arsenal, the use of fixed divisions to defend fixed locations, the creation of “stomach battalions” and the development of the Volksjäger disposable airplane.
The menu is inspired by a traditional Oktoberfest and features Duck Bratwurst Sliders, Mangalitsa Pork Wienerschnitzel, Spaetzel, Brussels Sprouts, Wild Mushrooms and a “Black Forest Cake.”
Space is limited and reservations are required. Dinner guests can access free parking in the American Sector lot on Magazine Street between Andrew Higgins Drive and Poeyfarre Street.
