Wartime memories from north Sutherland
In November 2005 Strathnaver Museum embarked on an exciting project to collect the war time memories of people across Mackay Country as part of the nationwide Their Past Your Future project. By March 2006 over 30 interviews had been filmed and recorded to create the Their Past Your Future DVD. The DVD explores how life was affected by WWII from many perspectives; from a man who as a young soldier was captured by the Germans or from the memories of a person who was a child and has memories of life at school.
All of these memories form the picture of how things were; some memories are happy and even amusing while others are a stark reminder of how terrible the war really was for thousands of people from this country. Accompanied by a colour booklet explaining the background of the project, terms used by the interviewees and a map.
