The Search for Missing World War II Servicemen
Saturday     

Author and New York Times Magazine contributing writer, Wil Hylton talks about his book, “Vanished: The Sixty-Year Search for the Missing Men of World War II." According to Mr. Hylton, the United States is committed to bringing all service members home – even though there are some 83,000 missing. 73,000 of the missing were World War II servicemen. In this talk, Mr. Hylton tells the story of the search for one American bomber plane that disappeared over the tiny Pacific island of Palau in 1944 and he also describes the work being done to find all the missing of World War II. This event was hosted by the New York Public Library.
