Make plans to check out the latest exhibit at the German American Heritage Center and Museum (712 W 2nd Street Davenport), Valor & Victory Gardens: WWII in the Hawkeye State, this week!

WWII was a global conflict that forever altered society and touched the lives of people around the world, including right here in Iowa. The year 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII. With this exhibit we remember and commemorate that momentous occasion. Through local headlines, personal letters, and historic artifacts, we will tell the Quad Cities‘ WWII story.

This exhibit is supported by the Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities and was co-curated by GAHC Staff and Arthur Pitz, Ph.D.

The exhibit will be open now through January 17 and is included with general admission:

Adult: $5 | Senior: $4 | Child: $3 | Member: Free
