The International Conference on World War II – Day 2 – Free online
March 7, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 7:15 pm
The National WWII Museum in New Orleans has hosted The International Conference on World War II since 2006—bringing together the best and brightest scholars, authors, historians, and witnesses to history from around the globe to discuss key battles, personalities, strategies, issues, and controversies of the war that changed the world. In addition to the many returning presenters, the Conference Planning Committee makes an effort to invite new historians each year to share their latest findings.
Joining the featured speakers are hundreds of attendees who travel from all over the world to learn more about this epic event. With an emphasis on nonacademic presentations and encouraging presenters to be more conversational than presentational, the Conference strives to connect with the audience through engaging discussions, question and answer periods, book signings, and receptions throughout the weekend.
With the generous and continued support of the Museum’s longstanding partner and Conference presenting sponsor, the Pritzker Military Foundation, on behalf of Pritzker Military Museum & Library, The International Conference on World War II remains the world’s leading convention of WWII experts, students, and enthusiasts.
