World War II veteran Anthony (Tony) Acevedo was among thousands of Americans captured by the Germans during the Battle of the Bulge. Although Tony and his fellow POWs who survived never publicly disclosed what they endured, he donated his wartime diary to the Museum to preserve the truth of what happened. Museum curators will share the details of this unusual addition to the Museum’s collection.​
