Live History: You Are There

Not unlike oral histories, recordings of speeches, events and other oral communications contemporaneous to the time of the subject matter can be especially evocative and instructive, not unlike reading a newspaper published December 8, 1941, the day after the surprise attack on the United States commonly referred to as, “Pearl Harbor.”  

Relatively early technology has enabled later generations to experience the reality of history happening long ago, but as though it is now.  There is a sense of the recorded voices being within feet of the listener. Such recordings, particularly when combined with other historical knowledge, provide nuance and context perhaps only exceeded by a joint presentation of visual and audio projection.
