Pearl Harbor Documentary

This video was compiled from interview clips taken from Barbara Gillis, Doris Stefaniga, Jeanne Wexler, Irene Kingsbury, Ellie Hauschild, and Ruby Butler. The interviews were conducted by Kendall Simonpietri, Arielle Carrick, and Kelsey Matthews. For this documentary, we focused on the moment our interviewees heard about Pearl Harbor. The documentary starts off with a clip of President Roosevelt’s famous speech given after Pearl Harbor. Then, each of our interviewees recounts where they were, what day it was, and the response of others to the bombing at Pearl Harbor.
