7:00 pm: Traveling Museum of WWII
September 5, 2019
75 years ago, soldiers stormed the beaches of Normandy in the largest amphibious operation in history. This combined assault known as D-Day remains as a pivotal, epochal moment in our collective memory of the Allied liberation of Western Europe from the clutches of the Third Reich. Join us for a fascinating program hosted by WWII Veterans History Project founder, Benjamin Mack-Jackson.
Benjamin is a 17-year-old filmmaker, writer, and historian. He created the nonprofit WWII Veterans History Project to educate future generations about history, veterans, compassion, generosity, bravery, and giving back, while encouraging young people to find their passion and create a voice for themselves.
Benjamin’s Traveling Museum of WWII allows people to get up close to original wartime artifacts, engaging them with the experiences of the men and women who served in the war. In the Carriage House Theater, hear first-hand accounts from veteran interviews, explore historical artifacts, and see what the battlefield looks like today.
Benjamin has interviewed over 90 WWII veterans over the past three years: collecting their stories and experiences that they may be shared with a new generation.
Admission is free, although donations are welcomed.
