KSMQ-TV Wins Emmy Award for “The Typist”

Posted in All Arts & Culture

AUSTIN, Minn.—KSMQ Public Television, the PBS television station serving southeastern Minnesota and northeastern Iowa, is the winner of an Upper Midwest Emmy®Award for its program chronicling the life of a Minnesota World War II veteran.

At the annual Emmy Awards ceremony last Saturday night in Minneapolis, the KSMQ documentary “The Typist” was the winner in the outstanding history program category. Program producers Chuck Czech and David Klassen joined KSMQ Managing Editor Stephanie Passingham in accepting the award on behalf of the station. It is the fifth Emmy Award for KSMQ-TV in the last two years.

“The Typist” followed the life and work of Larry Tillemans, the last living clerk-typist from the Nuremberg Trials. As a sergeant in the U.S. 3rd Army, it was Larry’s duty to document the testimony of victims and perpetrators of the Holocaust – information that deeply affected the young Minnesotan. After years of carrying this emotional burden, Larry decided to share his experiences with as many people as possible, a tireless effort that brought one man’s voice to a world that sometimes struggles to remember the lessons of the past.

“It is certainly satisfying to be honored by your peers,” said Eric Olson, KSMQ President & CEO. “But this award is really a testament to Larry Tillemans’ outstanding service to our country both during and after his tour of duty.” Anyone interested in viewing the program can locate it at www.ksmq.org
