"Examining How Nations Honored Their Fallen after WWII": Watch the Live Chat
Watch “Examining How Nations Honored Their Fallen after World War II,” a recent Facebook live chat with Dr. Christopher Hamner, lead historian for ABMC's Understanding Sacrifice education program, and associate professor of U.S. History at George Mason University. After World War II, nations built cemeteries to bury their war dead. Every country approached this differently. With millions of people killed during the conflict, nations had to bury massive numbers of war dead while also building new cemeteries in foreign lands. In examining the cemetery designs closely, a visitor can begin to understand how each nation perceived its own role in the war, and chose to honor those killed in conflict. Watch the full chat below to learn about British, German and American cemeteries from World War II.
