World War II in Oral History and Film
This seminar will explore WWII from the viewpoints of those who lived the experience. Through portrayals of the war in documentaries, films, and fiction, we will look at history as a process, a force by which perceptions of the past are influenced and transformed by changes over time as well as our present moment. From Europe to America to New Jersey, we will explore the history of this great war along with its lasting effects. The seminar includes a visit to the Oral History of Rutgers Graduates in WWII collection at the Alexander Library.
