2C logo2C --Creating Communities is a non-profit organization founded by visionary Anne Arundel County musician and artist Rob Levit and is governed by a committed volunteer Board of Directors. Creating Communities mission is to harness the power of the arts to build life skills and self-esteem, and foster connections across cultures. We accomplish this by partnering with communities and organizations to reach the underserved and provide direct access to the arts through innovative programs and mentorships.

The stories collected here depict the memories and experiences of veterans, Holocaust survivors, civilian spouses, and witnesses of World War II (WWII), who currently live in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. Each story was told with passion and trust to a Creating Communities volunteer, many of whom are high school students who had only previously had an opportunity to read about WWII in their History books. Many participants also shared their memorabilia and personal photographs, which have been scanned and provided here for you to see.

The Voices of Our Elders are precious and should be treasured, for they have not only seen, but experienced and participated in some of the most important historic events of our time. It is our hope that you will learn from and share in the experiences presented here. Please visit the site often as we will continue to add new stories as they are collected.

If you would like to share your story or volunteer for the project, please visit the Support Creating Communities page or send us an email: rlevit@comcast.net.
