We're a small team with big ambitions. We plan to create a crowd-sourced online repository of oral-history from the people who lived through World War 2.

That amazing generation who lived and fought through the Second World War is slipping away, their numbers dwindling daily. All too soon, there will be none left at all and World War II, like those conflicts before it, will fall out of living memory. It is of vital importance that we capture as many memories while we still have the chance. Once they have gone, they have gone. Those men and women will not be able to speak to us from beyond the grave. But while they are still living, they remain crucially important witnesses to the most cataclysmic war the world has ever known.

Help us to find these surviving veterans, and to then sit down with them and record their testimonies. Their life stories. They have incredible tales to tell – these ordinary men, women, and children and from all countries who were caught up in something completely beyond their control. Ordinary people made to do extraordinary things.
