"Never Forget".   To note the the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II the Oregon Historical Society is featuring a massive exhibit, World War II: A World at War, a State Transformed

As detailed in the Oregonian newspaper, the exhibit, spanning two floors and 6000 square feet, is the largest the society has ever done. It includes many historical manuscripts, letters and documents, as well as unusual artifacts like a Nazi coding device called the Enigma Machine, a log of Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor and remnants of the balloon bomb that caused casualties in Oregon, the only WWII injuries occurring in the Continental United States, and much more.

The following link will take you to the Oregon Historical Society web site for additional information:
