D-Day Was Just the Beginning: Radar and the Long Liberation

Join Maya Hirschman, PhD Candidate at the University of Toronto, as she introduces us to the importance of radar to the success of D-Day and its role in the Liberation of France, Belgium, and the Netherlands. Her talk uses objects, images, and oral histories from the Secrets of Radar Museum to illustrate how June 6, 1944, momentous as it was, was only the first day in a months-long, exhausting, at times heart-breaking, operation that required hundreds of radar personnel to make it succeed. Maya will highlight the experiences of Canadian and British radar personnel and display a selection of rarely exhibited artifacts from the collection.

The $10 cost of tickets supports Secrets of Radar Museum operations and collections care. This event is part of our 20th Anniversary programming and is being hosted by the 427 Air Force Wing. If you'd like to make a day of it, why not reserve a seat for the Wing's hot lunch starting at 11:30A.M.? Separate reservations for lunch required. Call Flo 519-455-0430.
