BCM's Korean War Exhibit Wins State History Award
Behringer-Crawford Museum is proud to announce that the Kentucky Historical Society has chosen BCM to receive an Education Award for last year's exhibit,  Korea: The Forgotten War.
The award   will be presented at the Kentucky History Awards ceremony in Frankfort, KY on Friday, Nov. 9, 2018.

Korea: The Forgotten War
“Korea: The Forgotten War” honored thousands of Northern Kentuckians who served in the Korean conflict, an era wedged between World War II and the Vietnam War which got its “forgotten” designation because it received relatively little attention over the years.

“Korea: The Forgotten War” was spawned by an oral history project funded by a grant from the Kentucky Oral History Commission, for which 12 veterans from Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati who served in Korea between 1950 and 1953 were interviewed at length about their experiences. These personal narratives were collected with the goal of recognizing and preserving stories of those who served both overseas and at home. 

The exhibit featured display cases devoted to each veteran with his photograph, excerpts from his oral history interview and memorabilia such as uniforms, dog tags, souvenirs, letters written home from Korea and medals, including Purple Hearts. The goal was to pay tribute to each veteran by preserving his memories and honoring his service.

“Korea: The Forgotten War” was on display at BCM from August 5-October 1, 2017. More than 6,000 people viewed the exhibit, many sharing their own emotional stories, including one South Korean woman who thanked us for what our country did to help them.
