“Oral history is a creative practice, and one of its great strengths is its openness to a diversity of approaches. This can be seen in the range of research-creation projects undertaken by oral historians at Concordia in the classroom and in our communities. Montreal Life Stories was the most ambitious of these projects, recording the life stories of 500 genocide survivors and integrating their stories in a range of public outcomes such as theatre plays, online digital stories, art installations, radio programming, documentary and animated film, and a museum exhibition.”
