Exhibit tells Catholic veteran’s story

Edward Haider, a parishioner at St. Rose of Lima in Roseville, Minn.,  is one of many Minnesotans from World War II whose story is included in a new multimedia exhibit at the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul called “Minnesota’s Greatest Generation: The Depression, The War, The Boom.”

In a simulated aircraft, museum visitors can get a sense of Haider’s experience as a paratrooper in a C-47 aircraft during the 1943 U.S. invasion of Sicily. Read more here in The Catholic Spirit, archdiocesan newspaper of St. Paul and Minneapolis.
