The Samuel Proctor Oral History Program (SPOHP) at the University of Florida is making history more accessible to the public and has launched the Oral History Public Program Series, which utilizes interviews from SPOHP's collection.
Testimony of War, the first public program, will incorporate a video presentation and panel discussion at Pugh Hall in Gainesville, Florida, on November 10, 2008 at 6 p.m.
The SPOHP-produced documentary "I Just Wanted To Live!" will tell the stories of four POWs held by the Japanese in the Pacific Theatre during WW II. Following the film, there will be a panel discussion consisting of WW II veterans moderated by SPOHP Director Emeritus Julian Pleasants. Visit our website for additional information.
