About Voices of Our Elders

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. Creating Communities recently received a small grant to document pivotal stories in the lives of WWII and Holocaust survivors living in Anne Arundel County.

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.

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.
