When most people think of June 1944, they immediately think: D-Day. The 2019 International Conference on World War II will be a global exploration of what is arguably the most pivotal month of the entire war. The conference sessions take place in a sequence that best tells the story of the entire month and its effects. New works and research on these subjects will be presented by top scholars in the field.

Don’t miss the opening keynote lecture from William I. Hitchcock, PhD, discussing “June 1944: The World in the Balance” and closing keynote presentation with Vicki Riskin and Peter Miller who will discuss the legendary documentary film series Projections of America.

Check out the full schedule and make plans to join the world’s preeminent gathering of WWII scholars, enthusiasts, and historians!

We will also move to a new host hotel, The Higgins Hotel & Conference Center on the Museum’s campus, featuring 230 guest rooms inspired by the 1940s with cutting-edge conference facilities. Hotel rooms are almost sold out, so act fast!
