A former high school and community college teacher, Jerry joined a group in 2001 that was beginning to create a museum dedicated to telling the story about the German prisoners of war that were housed at Camp Algona from April of 1944 to February of 1946. This museum eventually opened in 2004 and averages over 2000 visitors every year. Attendees will find out where the prisoners came from and the type of work they did across a four state area.
