The University of Oxford, with funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, aims to empower local communities to digitally preserve these stories and objects before they are lost to posterity.
Bring your diaries, letters, photographs, memoirs, objects or stories about your family’s experience in the war here to the National Memorial Arboretum to be recorded and added to the Universities freely-available, online archive.
Volunteers will be on hand from 11.00am to 3.00pm to welcome you and help record your story and photograph your objects.
Please do not bring any weapons or dangerous items (including gas masks) to the event.
Their Finest Hour is a University of Oxford project that aims to collect and digitally archive the everyday stories and objects of the Second World War that have been passed down from generation to generation.
