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 the 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 and make these films freely accessible to students, educators and classrooms.
>We do this through 26 award-winning films (to date) 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.
