Document type: Oral history
Accessibility: Free Only
Repository: University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. College of Literature, Science, and the Arts
Collection: Personal Oral History
Description: The dialogue that follows is taken from a conversation I had with two individuals, Irina and Peter Verhage, and their memories of World War II. Irina Verhage was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia (now know as the Czech Republic) on November 16, 1939. Peter Verhage was born in a small town in the Netherlands (Markalow) July 11, 1940, right after the war broke out. ---Anamika Naik, March 18, 1997 The conversation is about not only the memories of the war but the reaction of the people who were living under German occupation. Though their stories are different, together they provide a broader picture of what it must have been like to live in Europe during the war. The conversation begins with their first memory of the war and continues until the end of the war.
