NY Vets Tell Thirteen Your War Tale

The War, Ken Burns’ epic new seven-part documentary, premiers September 23 on Thirteen/WNET New York. The War explores the history and horror of the Second World War from the personal perspective of ordinary men and women who served or lived through it on the home front. Millions of New York-area families joined the war effort — fighting overseas, treating the wounded, or working in factories and shipyards.

To recognize this commitment, Thirteen has launched War Stories, an online history album to collect, and share, personal stories about World War II from viewers like you.We’re inviting you to videotape an interview, with yourself, a parent, grandparent or friend — whatever they remember about living through the war. Upload your video interview online or mail it to us and we will feature your story on War Stories. Will you add to this online video archive of New York history?

Visit War Stories online to submit your story about living through World War II.

We are working to post stories from hundreds of people who have already shared stories about living through the war, at home and abroad. Stories are somber, funny, and angry – but all are moving and personal.
