PBS to air documentary on controversial WWII
The building of the new World War II Memorial on the
Mall in Washington will be detailed on PBS this week in a
one-hour documentary by Glenn Marcus, a lecturer in the
Programs and a Johns Hopkins alumnus. The film, hosted
and narrated by Tim Russert, will air at 9:30 p.m. on May
The World War II Memorial: A Testament to Freedom
intertwines the process of creating the memorial with
stories of the civilians, soldiers, sailors and airmen who
experienced the war.
"It's more than a story about a memorial and a war,"
said Marcus, of New Voyage Communications. "It's about the
struggle to agree on the values we revere as a nation."
Among those featured in the film are famous veterans
— including Tony Curtis, Bob Dole and Yogi Berra
— and artists, craftsmen and public officials who
were directly involved in the controversial project.
"It wasn't an altogether smooth process, and the
documentary explores the controversy over the site and its
resolution," Marcus said. "As with all public art, there
were some birthing pains."
Marcus is also associate editor of the PBS companion
volume from Smithsonian Books, The World War II
Memorial: A Grateful Nation Remembers.
