This site is the result of several years of gathering materials about Deaf people’s experiences related to World War II for Deaf Studies courses taught at NTID/RIT.
The site focuses on three spheres of the world involved in this conflict. Deaf North Americans, Deaf Europeans, and Deaf Asians people’s lives are examined before, during and after the war. It also features videotape clips and full testimonies, articles, scripts, artwork, books and links to other related sites.
The site is far from complete. Rather it is just the beginning of our efforts to amass various materials, resources, documents, and visual testimonies under one website roof in the hopes of fostering further teaching, scholarship, and research in this important and often overlooked time period.
We are indebted to all the collections, playwrights, filmmakers, scholars, authors, and publishers that have agreed to allow us to reproduce their works here.
