Embracing Peace sculpture in Omaha until January

The Omaha Parks Foundation wanted this traveling statue, Embracing Peace by Seward Johnson Atelier, to mark Memorial Park’s 75th anniversary. It was slated to leave in mid-November just after Veterans Day. The Executive Director of the Omaha Parks Foundation met 6 News at the park and revealed that we now have permission to keep it until early 2024.

President Truman’s grandson, Nebraska dignitaries among those marking the 75th anniversary of Memorial Park

On Sunday, we went back in time to June of 1948 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Memorial Park. It was originally created as a memorial for the men and women from Douglas County who served during World War II. The park was dedicated by President Truman in 1948. It was rededicated by President Truman’s grandson 75 years later, in 2023.
