Veteran's History Project in Partnership with the Library of Congress
The Center for World War II Studies and Conflict Resolution has become an official partner of Library of Congress's Veteran's History Project.
Partners in the Library of Congress (LOC) project include veterans and military organizations, libraries and archives, museums, oral history programs, universities, and civic organizations. All are cooperating organizations willing to commit resources to promote the Veterans History Project.
The Brookdale Center has already taped over 150 interviews with New Jersey World War II veterans. These and additional productions are scheduled for public viewing over the Brookdale cable system and will also be made available via the LOC. Interviews conducted using other methods will also be retained by the Center, as well as the LOC, for access and use by the College community and public.
"The Center is documenting first hand accounts of our veterans' experiences to ensure the legacy of World War II is available to future generations," explained Paul Zigo, Director, Center for World War II Studies and Conflict Resolution.
If a World War II or Korean War veteran and interested in being interviewed, contact the Center at 732 224 2029 or if you know of a veteran of either war, please call. The Center would like to hear from you.
