“`To commemorate Saving Private Ryan’s 20th anniversary, The National WWII Museum Institute for the Study of War and Democracy will hold an event retrospective with D-Day scholars, cinematic historians, and production insiders. This all-day symposium takes place on June 7th.


“`Panel sessions will include conversations about the historical foundation and accuracy of the movie, a behind-the-scenes view of the making of the flick, how D-Day has been portrayed in other films since the war (including The Longest Day), and lasting legacy of Saving Private Ryan beyond its awards and box-office receipts.

“`In 1998, theater audiences collectively experienced the closest thing to the horrors faced on Omaha Beach during the D-Day invasions on June 6, 1944. In its opening 30 minutes, Saving Private Ryan brought to life the terror of this campaign, as ramps of countless Higgins boats dropped to launch what proved to be the most important battle of the 20th century, fought by what Tom Brokaw calls our Greatest Generation.

“`The National WWII Museum is located at the US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center, 945 Magazine St, New Orleans, LA.
