The number of people that have experienced World War II decreases. In order to preserve the memories about the war for future generations the Dutch Ministry of Health has subsidized so-called Oral History projects via the national program "Heritage of the War" (2005-2009). In total 48 Oral History projects were carried out by different institutions. Interviews were conducted with witnesses of the war.
