Listening to War: Wisconsin's Wartime Oral Histories (Database/Archive/Digital Edition)
Title: Listening to War: Wisconsin's Wartime Oral Histories
Author: Emily Pfotenhauer
Author: Shawn Vesely
Abstract: The Listening to War digital collection brings together first-person accounts of veterans and civilians in Wisconsin during World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Persian Gulf War. These stories of everyday life during wartime come from men and women who served on the battlefront; nurses, journalists, shipbuilders, and others who contributed to wartime work at home and abroad; Holocaust survivors who immigrated from Europe to Wisconsin after World War II; and Hmong refugees from Laos who were resettled in the state following the Vietnam War. Listening to War: Wisconsin's Wartime Oral Histories is coordinated by Recollection Wisconsin and supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Partners in this project include the Wisconsin Historical Society, the Wisconsin Veterans Museum, and the 22 libraries, archives, museums, and veterans’ organizations that contributed materials to this collection.
