Beginning today, Palos Park is hosting an elaborate World War II gallery at the McCord Gallery and Cultural Center, 9602 W. Creek Road, Palos Park.
The gallery will include documents signed by famous WWII leaders such as Franklin Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower and Adolph Hitler. Uniforms, weapons vehicles and photographs will also be on display. They’ve even got a church bell that survived the atomic blast at Nagasaki, the Sun-Times reports.
“Some of it’s creepy, but this is history,” art director Lynne Terr told the Sun-Times Media.
Most of the artifacts on display are from the private collection of southwest suburban physician Dr. Joe Matheu. The exhibit will run through Sunday, March 10.
