  2. "D-Day Plus 20 Years: Eisenhower Returns to Normandy" - World War II film series

    July 29, 2018, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM @ Visitors Center Auditorium

    This documentary originally aired on June 6, 1964, the 20th anniversary of the D-Day invasion. Walter Cronkite and Dwight D. Eisenhower begin at Southwick House, Supreme Headquarters of the Allied Expeditionary Force. Eisenhower recalls the strategy of the attack and discusses the choice of Normandy as the site. At the Royal Navy Yard in Portsmouth, Eisenhower re-enacts his journey on D-Day, and discusses Winston Churchill. At Normandy, Eisenhower reconstructs the attack on Pointe Du Hoc and Omaha Beach, and discusses the landings. Eisenhower felt deeply about the responsibility of sending so many young men into battle, and expressed great reverence for the men who fought the battle. "The thing that pulled us out," he says, "was the bravery and courage and initiative of the American G.I." Walking among thousands of white crosses at the American cemetery overlooking Omaha Beach, Eisenhower states, "I devoutly hope that we will never again have to see such scenes as these."
