Young Historians: World War II and Oakland
August 20 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree - $10.00
On August 15, 1945, Japan surrendered to the Allied Forces just a few months after the guns of Europe went silent. During this program, we’ll commemorate the 75th anniversary of Victory over Japan Day, or VJ Day, and examine the origins and impact of World War II. We’ll meet a few Oakland residents involved in World War II along the way.
Recommended for ages 7-12
