New York War Stories : Your Memories. Your Words.
The Second World War left America a legacy of stories. Many of those stories belong to New Yorkers, or to the parents and grandparents of the people who make up the great mosaic of the New York tri-state area today. Building on the national interest in World War II being sparked by the premiere of the epic PBS series The War - A Ken Burns Film, New York public television stations Thirteen/WNET and WLIW21 have collaborated to present a major multi-media event to remember, share and preserve the experiences of World War II through the eyes of New Yorkers.
