Display of rare items marks 75th anniversary of Pearl Harbor
NATICK, Mass. - A new exhibition commemorating the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor has opened at a private museum west of Boston.
The Museum of World War II's "Why We Still Remember" display chronicles the mood in the U.S. and Japan before and after the Dec. 7, 1941, attack.
Museum founder Kenneth Rendell suggests the exhibition's themes, including U.S. complacency to a growing foreign threat, should resonate today.
Among the featured artifacts are the distress message sent out from the Hawaiian naval base and the large binoculars from the sunken USS Arizona battleship.
More than 2,000 Americans were killed in the attack, which drew the U.S. into World War II.
The exhibit runs through Jan. 7, 2017.
