Collections + [RE]collections is an interactive Website embodying my 90 year old father?s World War II experiences. It is educational in that it chronicles an historical event and provides for interactive annotation. It is entertainment in that many of the stories span the emotional gamut from humorous to heart wrenching. It is informative in that the text and photographs create a unique first person narrative about war. It is personal in that it is told from my father?s own perspective. It is about social change in that I have a responsibility to disseminate this material to a global audience so that this major event in history is not forgotten or minimized. It was by designed by Susan Metros, developed by Heather Locke and programmed by Mark Spurlock.
This is a remarkable site, expressed in first person with streaming audio and video by the individual whose stories and experiences are related here. It is applicable to disciplines beyond History and allows you to experience ethicality, diversity, emotions, and raw honesty.
The artistic enhancements subtlely support the military background and feeling of the chaos of war. It is easy to navigate if you know to click on pictures and phrases. A back button on each page would facilitate returning to each country. It would be wonderful to click on the 40's small photos and enlarge them by doing so.
