June 1, 2013 - December 2016
Over the next three years, the Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum will present an inclusive commemoration of the pivotal events of World War II. World War II Remembered: Leaders, Battles & Heroes, is a series of exhibits and programs that will run from June 2013 through December 2016 marking the 70th anniversaries of the war. What makes this exhibit stand out from other interpretive WWII exhibits is the focus on personal stories. World War II Remembered will strive to honor the unsung heroes and tell the lesser known stories of the time. The accounts of such groups as the Tuskegee Airmen, Native American Code Talkers, the brave contribution of the Ritchie Boys, and the heroic stories of women at war and on the working home front will be shared. more information
