Legacy Series: Oral History Program

In the classroom, they are valuable primary sources, connecting students of all ages to the past through eyewitness testimony. Oral history interviews provide personal insight on complicated issues.

The Legacy Series oral history collection contains interviews related to World War II, the Holocaust, and the American home front during the war. In order to effectively utilize the collection in your classroom, consider the following guidelines.
