Wilmette Public Library Upcoming Events

  • The Men of Omaha Beach
    When: Thursday, May 26, 2016 - 7:00 PM - 8:15 PM
    Where: Auditorium

    The Men of Omaha Beach paints the picture of Omaha Beach on June 6, 1944 and provides insight into how the Normandy Invasion took place. The focus is upon individuals from the US 1st and 29th Infantry Divisions in the initial assault waves. These are the men responsible for the success of the risky endeavor called D-Day. Period photographs show what it was like in 1944 and contemporary photographs show what some of these battle sites look like today. The presentation ends with a visit to Normandy American Cemetery, site of the bloodiest of the fighting and now a fitting tribute to these men’s sacrifices. Presented by Robert Mueller.
