Oral History

We are the proud possessors of over 400 oral history tapes, recorded from the 1950’s up to today. These interviews cover many topics: the experiences of Jews in Rhode Island, life in the military, emigration from their homeland, and family history. The following tapes have been converted to CD format and are available to be listened to at our premises.  Please contact the office if you would like to listen to one of them.  The file is searchable.  Follow this link: list
