The National Home Front Project is working to compile themes that are heard across multiple interviews and collections in our archive. These currently feature artifacts that are shared by our interviewees, along with stories about Pearl Harbor, rationing, and volunteer drives. Some other topics recently emerging include Victory Gardens and farm life during World War II.

Click on the photos below to navigate to these theme pages that include excerpts from across our collections. Check back as we continue adding more themes to our website. Please contact us if you, a family member, or friend have wartime stories to share about these topics or any others.
