The Aleutian World War II National Historic Area in Unalaska is dedicated to the history of the Unangax̂ (Aleut) people and the role of the Aleutians during World War II. In 1996 Congress created the Aleutian World War II National Historic Area to educate the public on this little known part of American history. In 2002, the Visitor Center opened with exhibits, a theater, and a World War II - era radio room. The center intreprets both the military events of the Campaign and the reloaction and overwehlming hardships faced by the Native residents of the Aleutian and Pribilof Islands. Visitors to the center can read newspaper articles on the war from the 1940s, look over maps and flight charts, view a Russian Orthodox icon, and watch films on the Aleut Evacuation and the War in the Pacific.
