The new exhibition at the George C. Marshall Museum, “Hope for Those Who Need It,” was featured in the Travel section of USA Today on April 3 as one of the “Best museum exhibits in the U.S. this spring.” https://usat.ly/2Gub3PZ
Mentioned as one of 13 exhibits, “Hope for Those Who Need It,” celebrates the Marshall Plan that was signed into law 70 years ago in April 1948 to restore the economies of western Europe following World War II.
