I am so proud of my Czech heritage, which my parents taught me to honor and preserve. In their memory, my wife Cathy and I have pledged to always support the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library, because I know the NCSML will perpetuate the important lessons my parents taught me.
If we don’t invest in teaching it to young people, how will history stay alive?
Last year, I told you about the NCSML’s educational partnership with two immersive, hands-on learning high school programs to create Guts & Glory: The War Train that Shaped a Nation. High school students helped build the exhibition’s replica train cars and produced a virtual reality experiences for visitors.
