Interviewees wanted: Descendants of the Winnipeg General Strike

UPDATE: This research is now completed, and I am no longer conducting interviews. Thanks to all for sharing your stories, which are archived at the University of Winnipeg’s Oral History Centre.

Do you have a grandparent or other relative who was involved in the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike? Did that person share stories with you about their experiences?

Consider commemorating their participation by sharing those stories in a recorded oral history interview.

Interviews so conducted will used in teaching and research, including publications. For further details (including potential benefits and risks), contact Janis Thiessen, History Department, University of Winnipeg, ja.thiessen@uwinnipeg.ca, 204-786-9947.
