War Log: The Lt. Eugene Vickary WWII Collection
Spring 2017- Spring 2018
Canajoharie native Lieutenant Eugene Paul Vickary was a Navigator for the U.S. Army Air Force. His plane was shot down on October 1, 1943, and Vickary was taken prisoner of war. He was held in Stalag Luft III in Żagań from October 11, 1943 until January 27, 1945. He was then transferred to Stalag VII-A in Moosberg, and held there until the camp was liberated by American soldiers on April 29, 1945. "War Log" features his journal from his time as a captive, as well as a select number of his personal artifacts from his time serving our country.
