About Voices of WWII
Capturing the Voices of World War II
The Friends of the National World War II Memorial’s Capturing the Voices of World War II program marks the first time in American history where veterans interviewed at "their" memorial have their images and stories collected and archived in a manner that allows them to be digitally preserved for posterity and use by family members, educators, historians, and subsequent generations.
Through onsite interviews with veterans, Capturing the Voices of World War II transforms the Memorial into an outdoor classroom, providing a unique platform to digitally document the stories brought to life through first-person veteran accounts. This collection of videos, available through this site, is a precious digital time capsule that will serve as an invaluable resource to educate and engage millions of Americans now and for the many years to come.
DISCLAIMER: The interviews on this Web site are the personal reflections, recollections, and opinions of the interviewees. Some interviews have been edited for length where needed.
