In conjunction with the Grand Opening of the Museum by Wing Commander Richard Youngs on March 9th, the museum displayed for sale, a donation comprising a range of over 30 books dealing with World War II and the history leading up to it.
Some of the books are quite rare, such as Failure of a Mission by Sir Neville Henderson, the ambassador to the Nazi government from 1937-1940, Lease-lend by Stettinius, the man Roosevelt appointed to run it, The war that Hitler won about Nazi propaganda before and during the war and many others, including books about The fall of France, Stalingrad, Leningrad, Midway, Stalin and his generals and the Goebbels diaries.
The books are now on sale..
Next month, there will be on exhibition for sale, a large number of donated CDs and box sets covering a wide range of Jazz.
In a few weeks’ time there will be on sale a large number of donated CDs and box sets covering a wide range of jazz to coincide with the Corn Hall’s jazz evening tribute to Stan Getz with the Chris ingham Quartet on 4 April.

All funds made from book and CD sales go the running and upkeep of the museum.
Visitors are encouraged to pop in to the museum to see just how good a job the Diss Museum really does: a small museum in a small town, but packed with local information and collections of artefacts, backed up with photographs and documentation.
It also has a shop packed with tourist items, guides and many other interesting products.
