An acclaimed 15-hour documentary series on World War II featuring the harrowing first-person accounts of veterans came to a close Tuesday night, but America's process of learning from its complex and sometimes uncomfortable insights is just beginning.
Wednesday, PBS begins its second airing of The War by showing individual episodes on Wednesdays for seven weeks. PBS has equipped teachers at 20,000 high schools with a free resource kit, complete with one hour's worth of film clips, for using The War in history classes. And several organizations, including PBS affiliates and the Library of Congress, are building on the series' momentum by urging armies of ordinary citizens to track down World War II veterans and record their stories.
