Calendar   General
Location Virtual Event
Date Wed, Jun 5, 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Duration   1h

Some American veterans fought for their lives along the beaches of Normandy. Some were among the first to witness the horrors as they liberated emaciated prisoners from concentration camps. And some even helped Holocaust survivors as they began to reclaim their lives. Now, 80 years after the D-Day invasion, their stories live on. Join us in collaboration with Arlington National Cemetery for a special digital program honoring the resilience, commitment, and courage of American veterans. Learn how their sacrifices inspired some Holocaust survivors to serve their new country.

Rebecca Erbelding, Historian, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
