Oral History

The Society is steadily building its audio archive of interviews with some of Milton Malsor's longest residents.

For technical reasons it is not possible to make all of the material available through the Website. However, details of the interviews are available here, together with short audio extracts which are designed to give a flavour of the complete recording - click on the loudspeaker symbol to hear the extract.

Many of the recordings contain interviewees’ memories of life in Milton during World War 2. Some were anxious about family members who were “called-up” and from whom they would be seperated from 1939 until 1946. Others remember troop movements, bombing, rationing, POWs, and the plight of evacuees who were accommodated in Milton. These stories from those manning the “Home Front” have been compiled into a 43 minute audio CD entitled ”Adolf Hitler: Milton’s part in his downfall“; see our Publications page for more details.
