A special exhibition at The International Museum of World War II in Boston will open November 8, 2017, 75 years to the day when America entered World War II, dispatching its own soldiers to North Africa to join its Allies in fighting the Germans. The Real and Reel Casablanca; American Troops Enter World War II, Landing in North Africa will feature 75 artifacts drawn from the Museum's extensive collection that provide unmatched insights into the decisions surrounding the invasion at Casablanca, Morocco, and the atmosphere in the U.S. Where in the world was Casablanca?, wondered many anxious Americans. They were about to find out, both the real and the Hollywood versions.
