The Orchards to host free screening of ‘The Typist’ about Nuremberg Trials

SOUTHINGTON – The Orchards at Southington is hosting a free screening of the documentary film, “The Typist,” on Thursday, April 24, at 1:15 p.m. This film depicts the life story of Minnesota native Larry Tillemans, who is believed to be the last living clerk-typist at the Nuremberg Trials, which were conducted in Germany following World War II to try Nazi war criminals.

As a sergeant in the U.S. 3rd Army, it was Tillemans’ duty to document the testimonies of victims and perpetrators of the Holocaust, which deeply affected him. “The Typist” includes interviews with Tillemans, his children and friends, and experts on the Holocaust. Its message emphasizes the importance of remembering history so that its atrocities are not repeated.

Reservations are required to attend the screening at The Orchards, located at 34 Hobart St. in Southington. Please call The Orchards at Southington, (860) 628-5656 to reserve a seat.

The Orchards at Southington offers independent and assisted living, and is a not for profit member of Central Connecticut Senior Health Services, a Hartford HealthCare Partner.
