Eyes of the World

From D Day to VE Day

This powerful presentation written and narrated by Historian John Monsky takes you through The Final Eleven Months of WWII in Europe Told Through the Eyes ofErnest Hemingway, Lee Miller, Robert Capa and a Young American Intelligence Office.

Through music, archival photos, video, and personal letters, The Eyes of the World tells the dramatic story of the final eleven months of World War II in Europe through the words and images of Ernest Hemingway, LIFE magazine war photographer Robert Capa, Vogue model-turned-photojournalist Lee Miller, and a young soldier named Jerry ( The Soldier named Jerry real identity will be revea, who lands on Utah Beach on June 6, 1944. The journeys of these four remarkable figures intersect as they serve as the “eyes for the world” from England, France, Luxembourg, and Germany, while crossing paths with such fascinating characters as Pablo Picasso and Hemingway’s wife, war correspondent Martha Gellhorn.

John Monsky Performed this show at a sold out Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. We are in negotiations with The Boston Pops to film a PBS Special next May 2024 and have it ready to be Nationally Broadcast in time for the June 6th 2024 80th anniversary of D Day . As you are aware the 80th Anniversary of D Day will be a very Historical Event and all the Leaders of the world will be in Normandy to commemorate this major Historical Anniversary. The other significance is there will be only a handful of soldiers from all the Allied Forces who participated in D Day who will still be alive.
