Two Minute Silence Oral History Project

Scope and Content

The Two Minute Silence project has received a £10,000 grant from the Museums, Libraries and Archives Council (MLA) to trace the evolution and continuing relevance of the Remembrance Day two-minute silence, which marks its 90th anniversary in November 2009. Through the personal experience and testimony of Huddersfield people, young and old, the project will explore the continuing significance of the silence as a way of reflecting on global conflict and the beauty and value of peace.
