"What do you do on Veteran’s Day if your family was on the wrong side of history?"

That's a powerful question.

I think the answer should be just as nuanced as the question. There's not black or white thing here, it depends on the specific case of what your family members did and believed (there's a whole spectrum there), and to remember that we're not our ancestors.

Glad the audio interview idea was useful! I really think more people should do it now that we all have recording devices in our pockets at all time. Lots of priceless memories could be had (we focus so much on photos and videos, but forget audio).
