Voices of the Greatest Generation distills interviews with five World War II veterans into a 25 minute documentary, setting their own stories in their own words against archival photographs. The full length interview for each veteran can be accessed by clicking his name above.

This project was initiated in 2012 as the Senior Capstone Project of Hayes Thielman at Trinity School of Durham and Chapel Hill, Durham, North Carolina. 

It is dedicated to the memory of Norm Wilhelmi, April 3, 1926 – October 24, 2012, who was interviewed on September 15, 2012.
