80 Years Later: Aurora Remembers D-Day

March 5, 2024 - July 7, 2024 

On June 6, 1944, in what remains history's largest seaborne invasion, 160,000 troops crossed the English Channel. Officially known as Operation Neptune, but remembered as D-Day, the Allied liberation of Normandy changed the tide of the WWII and left thousands dead. Explore D-Day stories of Aurorans and learn how technologies developed in our own backyard helped the Allies win in Europe.

“’Mosaic of Cultures: Aurora’s Nepali Community’ is a unique opportunity to delve into the rich and unique aspects of this community, including their distinct music, art, dance, religion and traditional foods,” said T. Scott Williams, Director of the Aurora History Museum “By showcasing these unique cultural elements, the exhibition aims to raise awareness of the significant and invaluable contributions of the Nepali community to Aurora’s history; this captivating exhibit also highlights the stories of individuals, business owners and their cultural traditions and history, and features cultural objects provided by community members, archival images, interviews and immersive elements to bring the essence of Nepal to life.”
