On Thursday, September 24 in St. John's Cathedral, Christiane Citron enthralled Denver Branch members and their guests with stories from the unpublished memoir of Sir Clive Morrison-Bell. This 22-year member of Parliament, Personal Private Secretary to Winston Churchill, and internationally acclaimed author was also a World War I Prisoner of War. Christiane shared stories of Clive-Bell's hard-to-believe experience over four years as a German POW in five different German POW camps, followed by a surprising internment in Switzerland. Prior to the presentation, attendees socialized while enjoying wine, beverages and light appetizers. Christiane lingered after she was finished speaking, answering questions and swapping stories with those in attendence.
