The World War II Foundation Global Education Center, Coming in September of 2018 in South Kingstown, Rhode Island, will welcome school groups, educators, researchers and the public from around the United States and share with them, especially the students, an overview of the personal stories of the WWII generation.
The education center will be very interactive and focused on preserving these stories so that future generations don’t forget the sacrifices of all those who served and survived, WWII. It will also impart the hard lessons of war and its cost to society.
The curriculum will be centered around the 21 films the WWII Foundation has produced to date for a global television audience, as well as preserve the artifacts of WWII, along with accessibility to books, which chronicle the stories of that generation. A small theater, seating 25 people, will be a central part of the education center’s visual learning component.
The learning center does not glorify war, but focuses on the people and their personal stories during that time period.
The education center will utilize the following to help tell the stories of WWII:
-World War II Foundation Documentary Films-Both on location and on-demand globally
-World War II Artifacts
-Lectures by historians, authors, filmmakers and those from academia
-Veteran Q & A Events
