Lecture Series Presents: Remember Pearl Harbor

Part of its 2021 Lecture Series, presented by Ron Goodgame and Donna Canney, the Wright Museum will show the documentary, Remember Pearl Harbor, on Tuesday, May 18. Honoring the 80th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, the 2016 documentary includes interviews with servicemen and civilians who watched Japanese planes drop torpedoes and bombs on the American Pacific fleet anchored on ‘Battleship Row.’

“Movies like Remember Pearl Harbor are so important to everything the Wright Museum stands for as an institution,” said Executive Director Mike Culver. “Paying respect and honoring those lost to World War II is part of our mission.”

Remember Pearl Harbor was directed by Tim Grey, founder and president of the WWII Foundation. His work with the Foundation has won 5 Regional Emmy Awards and American Public Television’s prestigious National Programming Excellence Award.

Remember Pearl Harbor begins at 7 p.m. at Wright Museum, 77 Center Street in Wolfeboro on the first floor of the new DuQuoin Education Center. Admission is $3 for members and $8 for non-members. Seating is limited due to CDC guidelines on social distancing. Reservations are strongly encouraged and can be made by calling 603-569-1212.

The region’s leading resource for educators and learners of all ages on World War II, the Wright Museum features more than 14,000 items in its collection that are representative of both the homefront and battlefield.
