On Sunday February 24th, historian Kevin Heskin will take us back to the days of World War II, bringing examples of his remarkable collection touching upon all aspects of the war, from all of the countries involved. He has uniforms belonging to Spanish, German, Japanese, and American soldiers. In addition, he will show the varied weapons the armies used, including swords, bayonets, gas masks, and more.
Heskin has long been fascinated with World Wars I and II. He has spent more than a decade hunting down everything he can find that memorializes these two devastating times in our history. He has previously brought many objects from his WWI collection to North Gate, and his memorabilia from the second World War is also fascinating.
North Gate will be going back to this historic time from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday, February 24. Join us and Heskin, and relive the second “war to end all wars” as seen from different countries’ viewpoints.
