We were excited to read in the At War column in The New York Times that they are looking for people who lived through World War II to share their experiences. Their stories will be included in a variety of coverage throughout the year to mark the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII. Learn more about the project below and then share the news far and wide. These stories need to be told.
Do You Have Living Relatives Who Lived Through World War II? Help Us Tell Their Story
Published January 7, 2020
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II. Throughout 2020, At War will be commemorating this historic event and its effects on the course of world history, with a variety of coverage, including accounts from people who lived through the war, but did not serve in the military: Holocaust survivors, people who joined underground antiwar movements, women who joined the stateside work force, Japanese-Americans forced into internment camps and others.
If you or a family member lived through the war — anywhere in the world — and want to tell us the story of its effect on your life, let us know via the form below. Share details of your experience, and include contact information so The Times can follow up with you.
