World war two Video memories (http://www.ww2videomemories.com/)
This potentially fascinating site maps first-hand accounts of World war two. veterans and survivors of the conflict are filmed on smartphones talking about their wartime experiences, and the footage is then uploaded and -after review -posted on the relevent location on a world map. Visitors can click the marker to watch the clip.
Tony Banks explains the rationale behind the World War Two Video Memories initiative:-
“The experiences of some senior military personnel were recorded and shown to great effect in documentaries such as The World At War, but these represent only a fraction of the story. With every week which passes, the wartime generation grows smaller, and its unique memories correspondingly disappear. As someone who has served in a war and now works in a sector which cares for older generations, and therefore regularly hears residents stories on the extraordinary period between 1939 and 1945, I was inspired to create a site that allowed for these memories to be easily recorded for posterity. Whether the memories recount the horror of conflict or the realities of life on the Home Front, I hope that people from across the world will grab their smart-phones and take the opportunity to film and document the memories of the World War Two generation…ensuring that their experiences are understood and never forgotten.”
