The World War Two Living History Project (WW2LHP) is an ongoing high school educational project designed to collect and disseminate the personal histories of the World War II generation. We are located in upstate New York.

 The project was born in the late 1980s when a Hudson Falls High School history teacher began to send questionnaires home with students who had grandparents who served in WWII. As the years passed, fewer and fewer questionnaires would be returned as the WW II generation began to pass away, and with them, their stories.  Around the same time, the World Wide Web was quickly developing and technology resources were becoming available for use in educational settings. Thus, the WW2LHP was born. We encourage you to read the rationale , "REMEMBER", here.

"You know, I have never talked with a person about this at all. I know itís gone past. I think that I was lucky to get home. There are a lot of my friends over there...who didnít make it. I just feel sorry for them..." -Chester Ross, 2001
