Knox students’ WWII exhibit opens May 27

From the Register-Mail:

Do Your Part Inc., an organization of students from the Knox College Department of History’s “Museums, Monuments and Memories” course, will present the exhibit “The Second World War: A World Transformed,” as part of the course.

“The Second World War: A World Transformed” will be open to the public at 4 p.m. May 27 at Knox’s  Ford Center for the Fine Arts and run through 6 p.m. June 7. The exhibit can be viewed during the center’s normal business hours, from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Told from the vantage point of multiple individuals — including multiple Knox alumni — the exhibit explores World War II’s role as an internationally transformative event. The exhibit makes extensive use of oral histories collected by students this spring, and aims to offer a well-rounded account of the war from a multi-national perspective.
Exhibit attendees will see a multimedia experience, chat with students in period clothing and expand their knowledge of this global conflict.
