If you're fascinated by World War II coverage and have seen every WWII documentary available on Netflix, then this event is for you. In honor of Veterans Day, the National Archives is premiering newly restored high-definition films of two World War II-era documentaries. These two films, titled "The Negro Soldier" and "Let There Be Light," have been carefully restored by the National Archives Motion Picture Preservation Team.
"The Negro Solider" depicts white and black troops joining together to fight against the Axis. And "Let There Be Light" follows the lives of GIs who have been emotionally traumatized by the war.
This event is free and begins at 7 p.m. Make sure to use the Special Event entrance at Constitution Avenue and Seventh Street NW. For more information on additional screenings, go to archives.gov/calendar.
