Description: The POW Oral History Project exists to collect, transcribe, and permanently preserve individual prisoner of war experiences from the period of US involvement in the Second World War (1941-45) and Korea (1950-53). Service personnel who were prisoners of either the Germans, the Japanese, or North Korea and its allies are the focus of this project. Interview themes include capture, prison or work camp life, treatment, liberation, postwar adjustments, and life as an ex-POW. A primary focus of this project is Minnesota ex-POWs. "Minnesotan" is broadly defined to include those who were born and/or raised in the state, or have resided here for a meaningful period of time; the term is designed to be inclusive, and not exclusive.
