Germans in the Woods StoryCorps Shorts

PBS Premiere: August 31, 2010

Online: Sept. 1, 2010 – Nov. 28, 2017


Joseph Robertson was an infantryman in the U.S. Army during World War II, and he fought in the Battle of the Bulge. The stark black and white images in this short haunt the viewer — just as Robertson is haunted still by his memories of that battle. Millions of Americans currently listen to StoryCorps award-winning radio broadcasts on NPR's Morning Edition. By pairing the voices and stories from its radio segments with imaginative new animations, StoryCorps will produce six of its most beloved stories to follow long-form POV documentaries in August and September. (2 minutes)
