History

Cincinnati and WWII

  Sunday marked the 73rd anniversary of the attack on Peal Harbor, which brought America into World War II. University of Cincinnati Associate Professor of History and author Robert Earnest Miller and David Conzett, Cincinnati Museum Center curator, History Collections and Fine Art, join us to discuss what life was like in Cincinnati leading up to that day, and how Cincinnati’s people and businesses quickly shifted to a wartime footing. Dr. Miller is the author of Cincinnati: The World War II Years, and his recently-released World War II Cincinnati: From the Front Lines to the Home Front. For a hands-on look at what life was like here during the war, visit the “Cincinnati Goes to War” exhibit at the Cincinnati Museum Center.
