 “It Was a Crime to be a German” by Barbara Kay.  Historical actor Barbara Kay will portray her great-grandmother, Margaret May, a resident of southern Illinois who saw and felt anti-German hysteria a century ago.  She will illustrate her presentation with photographs, newspaper headlines, and editorial cartoons of the time.  Through her first-person, costumed portrayal, she will bring the struggles of World War I-era German Illinoisans to life and will engage audiences with questions and discussion.  The program will be held in the Monroe County History Museum’s Allscheid-Metzger Gallery located at 724 Elaine Drive, Waterloo, IL 62298.
