Old Age and Telling the Truth

VE Day special | Podcast | History Extra:

Steve Humphries on interviewing WWII veterans:

"Nobody in all the interviews I've done has said, "I won't or can't answer that question".

I think they really want to lay it down. They want to tell the truth as a matter of record. And I think there's something about very old age which makes people want to tell the truth. They don't mind breaking taboos, they just want to get it out there.

They want to tell it how it was before they go."
