At the moment, this website will keep you up to date with news about the project. You can also learn about the history of war widowhood in Britain on our History pages. In our Library you can find out about novels, poetry, art, and newspaper articles that feature war widows.
Once we have trained our volunteers in oral history interviewing in January 2017, we will begin posting recordings and transcripts of interviews with war widows and their close relatives. You’ll be able to find them on the Stories pages of the website.
If you’d like to be notified by email whenever we post new material on the website, you can subscribe to updates by clicking the “Follow” button at the bottom right of your screen.
For this first stage of the project, volunteers must be members of the War Widows’ Association of Great Britain. If you are a member of the WWA and would like to be involved with the project, please take a look at our call for volunteers. We plan to widen our participation in future. If you are interested in being involved in the project in any way at a later stage, please do get in touch with us.
