About this collection

The World War II - Then & Now Collection presents a selection of photos and documents from the personal collection of John Meyerhofer. This collection is partly from photos taken by his grandfather, Jerry Arendt, during World War II, partly from personal photos taken during a trip to trace his grandfather’s path during World War II, and finally from letters that his grandfather sent back to his parents just after VE-Day when he was still in Europe on duty at a POW camp in Germany. Besides personal items, this collection is supplemented with photos, videos, and audio files from other sources around the internet to show how some World War II locations have changed. These files also help set the mood to immerse viewers of the materials into the time period. The sacrifice by World War II veterans should never be forgotten.
