I really enjoyed interviewing people – Tara talks about the Way We Are Project

We started off by learning how to use the recorders and how to ask questions suitable for the interview we were giving. We learnt how to avoid short answers and how to get more information from a person who doesn’t say much. We then had a practise interview with a lady to test the sound levels and practise setting up the recorder properly. We then went to the archives to look for information on certain situations people were in during the war to get an idea of what we would be doing. We then went to interview some people at Soroptomist House. We recorded two different interviews and got to know a lot more about life in the war or just after the war. When we got back from the interview we wrote up a summary sheet to make it easier for people to find the information they want when they visit the archives. I really enjoyed interviewing people but I enjoyed learning how to record people properly and writing up the summaries.
