Georgia Journeys: Legacies of World War II
Drawing on testimony obtained through the Museum of History and Holocaust Education's Legacy Series oral history project, this hands-on, multimedia exhibition follows the experiences of twelve individuals whose lives intersected in Georgia, but whose journeys took them across the world. The exhibition also provides a glimpse into President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's unique Georgia Journey that occurred between 1924 and his death in Warm Springs in 1945.
Whether Jane Tucker’s journey to work as a Rosie the Riveter in the Savannah shipyards, Guy Gunter’s service as a glider pilot on D-Day, Dr. Hillard Pouncy’s experiences as a Tuskegee Airman, or Norbert Friedman’s survival of eleven concentration camps, Georgia Journeys follows the lives of World War II veterans, home front workers, and Holocaust survivors who came to call Georgia their home.
