The Audio Collection

Introduction

The Audio Collection will attempt to represent a cross-section of experiences from the First World War, through oral history interviews with veterans, their families, and those who served the War effort at home. Presently the collection contains an array of segments of interviews with World War One veterans and will soon be expanded to include the voices of other people accounting their personal experience of this historic event.

You may also be interested in viewing the archive's collection of podcasts conducted over the past two years with prominent scholars of literature and history who discuss the importance of poetry, the impact of the war, and what it means to remember and commemorate.
