2010 -- THE YEAR OF VALLEY ADVENTURES
Hero-Athlete John Damski 1938 - Photo in the Archives of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley.
A few faded amateur paintings and metals from a long ago war have led your Museum to begin investigating the heroic life of one time Van Nuys resident John Damski. The life and times of Damski are the stuff of which great films are made. A courageous young athlete who in the face of Nazi oppression in his Polish homeland, saved many lives including his future bride.
