Best-selling author and Friends of the National World War II Memorial's Resident Historian Alex Kershaw is one of America’s most skilled and knowledgeable WWII storytellers. Since 2021, he has enthralled high school audiences and challenged students to ask themselves the same hard questions their forebears were forced to answer 80 years ago. Students experience World War II as the saga of ordinary individuals who worked together and prevailed. They come away inspired. . . realizing, often for the first time, that when they join with others for the common good, they truly can change the world for the better.

Together we can revisit the past as a gift to our future.
