WWII Lesson Resonates

Richard L. Hall, who flew a plane in 1945 that dropped food supplies across Holland during the “Hunger Winter,” delivered a time-honored message at Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Human Nutrition, giving future humanitarian leaders food for thought.

“Make the best decision with what you’ve got,” he said while imparting recollections during a lecture titled “The Long Shadow of the Dutch Famine.”

This insightful commentary about the lecture—which also featured an appearance by L.H. “Bertie” Lumey who spoke about how the Dutch famine affected expecting mothers and their offspring—was written by Ingrid Kohlstadt, a faculty associate at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
