Public Programs

  1. IKEducation D-Day Program: "Primarily Omaha Beach"

    June 6, 2018, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ Library Courtyard

    It is said that the defeat of Nazi Germany was sealed on Omaha Beach. One hundred and sixty-thousand troops landed within 24 hours on a 50-mile front. Participants are introduced to the overall objective of D-Day and how its story is preserved through primary sources. They then apply that knowledge through examination of documents and artifacts from Omaha Beach. IKEducation programs are very popular with school groups, and the Eisenhower Foundation is pleased to offer this as a summer public program in observance of the anniversary of D-Day, June 6, 1944. This one-hour program, "Primarily Omaha Beach", is appropriate for school-age children and adults. The program is free with paid admission.

  2. IKEducation D-Day Program: "Code Talkers"

    June 6, 2018, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM @ Library Courtyard

    All of the countries involved in World War II had top-secret military information that had to be hidden from their enemies. For this reason, numerous tactics were used to disguise messages. In Code Talkers, participants explore the U.S. Military's secret weapon: Native American service members using their native languages to create codes that were never broken, even after the end of the war. Typically a field trip option for schools, the Eisenhower Foundation is pleased to offer this popular IKEducation program to the public on the anniversary of D-Day. This fun, one-hour program will be enjoyed by adults and school-age children, and is a great family activity to begin the conversation about World War II. Code Talkers will begin at 1:30 p.m. in the Eisenhower Presidential Library Courtyard and is included with paid admission.
