Description

World War II was one of the defining events of the twentieth century and the number of people alive who experienced this momentous time decreases every day. This project thus set out to identify and interview, first, Linfield alumni who lived through this crucial event. Through the use of recorded oral history interviews, this project uncovered pieces of Linfield’s past as well as important and engaging stories about what life was like for those who lived through the Second World War. This project is ongoing with plans to interview more Linfield alumni and community members about their various wartime experiences.
