Brick Store Museum plans oral history day

This Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11, the Brick Store Museum will celebrate the memory of World War II with an oral history day and a special lecture. The museum is seeking participants (men and women) for the event that are willing to share their stories and experiences on the home front and on the front lines in the 1940s.

The recordings will be placed in the museum’s local history archives for use by future researchers and visitors.

Staff and volunteers at the museum will conduct interviews in the museum’s galleries between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 11. The museum is currently looking for interviewees, and invites those that can share their story to sign up for an interview slot, offered on the hour starting at 10 a.m. Preregistration is required.

In addition to the oral histories, a special presentation by World War II Foundation volunteer David Cram will take place at 1 p.m., and is free and open to the public. Cram will present his father’s experiences in World War II, and describe the importance of researching familial history across borders.
