PHOTO EXHIBIT – 1945: World War II’s Last Year in Pictures

PHOTO EXHIBIT – 1945: World War II’s Last Year in Pictures

EVENT DETAILS

At the end of 1944, Americans were feeling good about the progress of World War II, but it was far from over. The year 1945 would see the great joy of Victory In Europe (VE Day) and Victory Over Japan (VJ Day) but is would also see some of the most brutal fighting of the war. It would show the world the true horror of Hitler’s Nazi Germany and it would see the introduction of the most destructive weapons humanity had ever known. It was one of the most important years in history and 75 years later, its effects still shape the world we live in today. These 40 iconic images from the last year of World War II capture the reality, sacrifice and raw emotion of the men and women who struggled and succeeded in preserving freedom on a global basis. About the Lone Star Flight Museum Lone Star Flight Museum is open Monday-Sunday now through Labor Day. Tickets start at $9.95 with senior and military discounts. Memberships are also available.
