During the 2012 World War II Exhibit at McCord Gallery and Cultural Center again and again we heard, “Please do this exhibit next year. I have a war relic that a relative brought home, and they would be so thrilled to have it shown.” This year new collection of WWII artifacts will be on display. Among the treasures are a Hitler Youth dagger with a handmade wooden blade surrendered by a 14-year-old boy, a German mauser rifle, a machine gun ammunition belt, Rudolph Hess’s silverware, opium cigarettes given to Kamakazi pilots and many other historic items. Docents in WWII uniforms will explain and demonstrate parts of the collection. Jeeps and military vehicles from the era will be parked on the lawn.
Join us on Saturday evening, March 15, at 7:00pm for a special reception with refreshments and talks by the collectors about specific items in the exhibit. Tickets are $50. Reservations required. For more information call 671-0648.
