“Never Give In – Never, Never, Never,” a Pioneer Institute forum on teaching World War II in schools was held on Monday, May 4th in Boston, on the week of the 70th Anniversary of Victory in Europe Day. This clip features co-keynote remarks by David Kennedy, the Donald McLachlan Professor of History Emeritus at Stanford University, where he received the Dean’s Award for Distinguished Teaching in 1988. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in history in 2000 for Freedom from Fear: The American People in Depression and War. Professor Kennedy is also the author of Over Here: The First World War and American Society.
