Helping Veterans Tell Their Stories
Veteran Films is pleased to be partnering with Aberystwyth University to run a pilot scheme called the Veterans Oral History Project which will focus on veterans of a specific contemporary conflict. Our objective is to collect and preserve the personal accounts of recent-war veterans and make them accessible to all via an online library of filmed interviews, so that future generations may hear directly from those who served and hopefully be able to better understand the realities of war.
There are currently nine completed films which may be viewed here or accessed and downloaded for free from www.peoplescollection.wales
It is important to emphasize that the project will be heavily focused on veteran volunteers serving in various capacities, for example as trainers, interviewers and interviewees. More specifically, the project aims to train four veterans to interview ten veterans that have been involved in a contemporary conflict.
