WWII: Collections
Based on the recollections of World War II veteran William Yenofsky, thi
s multimedia exhibit traces his four years of combat duty: "The year is 1941. I am a modest, unassuming individual, not overly aggressive, yet, I am drafted into this situation because the United States is at war and a 'man has to do what a man has to do.' I am issued a uniform, a rifle and I am taught to kill." You won't find any Hollywood sentimentality here: Sergeant Yenofsky offers candid accounts of his experiences as a young officer in North Africa, as a participant in the Anzio invasion of 1944 ("a fiasco"), and the liberation of Dachau in 1945.

Tower of London
Though probably most renowned for its history of bloody executions and atrocious prison sentences, the Great Tower, as it was first called by William the Conqueror, was originally the residential palace of the Norman ruler. Over the centuries, the compound grew to accommodate the needs of the monarchy, while reflecting all its crowning achievements and love for pomp and ceremony. This site brings to life the colorful history of the Tower with numerous anecdotes and ghostly tales of prisoners long departed.

Postwar Atomic Culture

In 1951, President Truman established the CONELRAD [CONtrol of ELectronic RADiation] broadcast system in case of an atomic emergency. These days, CONELRAD is something completely different - a site "devoted to ATOMIC CULTURE past and present but without all the distracting and pedantic polemics." This fascinating look at a sobering subject includes dozens of Real Audio clips with advice on what to do when bombs fall; the CONELRAD 100, a list for the atomic-film connoisseurs that features titles like "Atom Age Vampire" and "Day the Earth Stood Still"; and Atomic Platters, a sampling of music that celebrates, satirizes, or laments the atomic age. It's an eerie and electrifying slice of postwar atomic culture.
