Korean and Second World War Veterans Share their Stories with The Memory Project

This past week in Ottawa, local military veterans of the Second World War and Korean War participated in a national-wide digital and oral history initiative called The Memory Project. 

In a press release received last week, it said that “With more than 2,500 Second World War veteran testimonials recorded to date, The Memory Project Archive recently received new funding to collect and preserve the experiences of Canada’s Korean War veterans so that may never be forgotten.

An initiative of The Historica-Dominion Institute, The Memory Project Archive is creating an unprecedented record of Canada’s participation in the Second World War and Korean War as seen through the eyes of thousands of men and women who were there. It is providing every living veteran with the opportunity to preserve their memories through recorded interviews and digitized memorabilia".

Their stories are available, in both official languages, at
