Do Your Part Inc., an organization of students from the Knox College Department of Historyâ€™s â€œMuseums, Monuments and Memoriesâ€ course, will present the exhibit â€œThe Second World War: A World Transformed,â€ as part of the course.
â€œThe Second World War: A World Transformedâ€ will be open to the public at 4 p.m. May 27 at Knoxâ€™sÂ Ford Center for the Fine Arts and run through 6 p.m. June 7. The exhibit can be viewed during the centerâ€™s normal business hours, from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Told from the vantage point of multiple individuals â€” including multiple Knox alumni â€” the exhibit explores World War IIâ€™s role as an internationally transformative event.Â 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.
