ABILENE, Kan. (AP) - The Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum in Abilene is highlighting World War II allies and resistance groups whose contributions to the war are seldom studied in the U.S.

A new exhibit called “Be Ye Men of Valour” introduces visitors to the cultures, peoples and histories of 19 countries whose contributions to the Allied cause are lesser known.

Objects in the exhibit have been contributed from museums and individuals throughout the U.S.

The Polish Mission Museum in Orchard Lake, Mich., donated objects including a concentration camp inmate jacket and a uniform worn by a Polish resistance fighter during the Warsaw Uprising.

Significant artifacts from a museum in Maryland include identification cards belonging to a Latvian refugee and personal effects of Latvia’s minister of Defense from 1931-1940.
