AWARD-WINNING WORLD WAR II DOCUMENTARY FILMS FOR STUDENTS, EDUCATORS AND THE PUBLIC
Step back into history and hear the stories of those who were there
Each day some 425 veterans of World War II pass on, taking with them incredible personal stories of the time period 1939 through 1945. The goal of our World War II Foundation is to preserve some of the truly inspirational stories of those who witnessed and were swept up in the most devastating conflict known to man.
We do this through more than two-dozen (to date) award-winning films donated to American Public Television, narrated by some of the world’s most well-known people.
The World War II Foundation’s Global Education Center, which features over 3,000 artifacts, a theater and a library with over 700 WWII books, also educates teachers, students and the public.
We have also dedicated a large overseas monument that honors American leadership on D-Day. The Major Richard D. Winters Leadership Monument is located in Sainte-Marie-du-Mont, Normandy, France (photo).
This interactive website is also part of our educational mission to ensure that future generations do not forget this critical time in world history and the very personal stories of those caught up in its path.
The World War II Foundation and Tim Gray Media are currently working on their 25th and 26th WWII films for global television airing and free watching on this educational website.
In-person or virtually via the Internet.
The non-profit World War II Foundation’s Global Education Center is located at 344 Main Street in South Kingstown, Rhode Island. The center features over 3,000 WWII artifacts, a theater and library. It is open to students, educators and the public.
