WWII Speeches: Examples of Students' Interviews with Grandparents

When I asked students to choose their top five choices from a list of topics for their WWII speech activity, I always suggested that they could also ask to do their speech on a topic that was not on the list. Most students have a relative that is still alive who lived through WWII. I suggested that interviewing such a relative and sharing their stories would be a great topic for their speech. Many have chosen to share these stories in their speeches. For example, each year we hear speeches from students of Japanese ancestry about relatives who lived in Japanese internment camps.

To fulfill their research requirement, their interview with their relative must be documented and can only count for one of their three required sources. Click on the links below to read a few examples of these interviews:
