Interview with My Grandfather to Know His Cold War Experience

Your final paper is an oral history project, in which you will interview a person and interpret their Cold War experience. Conduct an oral history interview with someone who has lived during the Cold War (this person must have been old enough to remember the Cold War). Choose one of the themes in our course that you want to inquire in your paper. Your oral history interview will be your primary source for writing your paper. Design the questions you will ask your interviewee in a way that you can inquire more about the topic you chose. How have this individual’s experiences intersected with the course of Cold War history? How have the historical forces and themes presented in the lectures and readings affected them?
