Having just commemorated the 75th Anniversary of the end of World War II, The National WWII Museum is hosting a global conference in New Orleans on September 9–11, 2021. Memory Wars: World War II at 75 and Beyond is a presentation of the Museum’s Institute for the Study of War and Democracy, held at the institution’s new Higgins Hotel & Conference Center.

Memory Wars will explore World War II’s place in public memory through a global prism, examining how museums, filmmakers, media, memorials, and historians (both academic and public) help shape memories of the conflict.
