Happy Dog Takes on the World: The Legacy of World War II, 70 Years Later

September 1, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The Cleveland Council on World Affairs, the City Club of Cleveland, International Partners in Mission, and the Northeast Ohio Consortium of Middle Eastern Studies (NOCMES), team up to bring you a panel discussion on hot global issues located at the Happy Dog in the Detroit Shoreway neighborhood.

Seventy years ago, on September 2, 1945, Japan formally surrendered to the Allies, ending World War II. “None of us knew then,” war correspondent Theodore H. White later wrote in his memoirs, “that this was the last war America would cleanly, conclusively win. We thought it was the last war ever.” What did World War II mean for the United States? How did it shape our alliances? How are the effects of World War II still reverberating across  the world , 70 years later and how may they be starting to shift?

Join us for a panel discussion with Kathryn C. Lavelle, Ellen and Dixon Long Professor in World Affairs at Case Western Reserve University and Skip Engel, moderated by WPCN’s Tony Ganzer, on the legacies of World War II.
