From the StoryCorps Archives: Stanley House on His Mother's Childhood Experience in Germany
Just over two years ago, the StoryCorps mobile soundbooth came to Wilmington and recorded rich stories of family, heritage, and personal struggle. WHQR News is thrilled to bring this wonderful catalog of Wilmington back for a second look.
Stanley House and Chris White speak with StoryCorps Wilmington. House speaks about his family’s involvement with the German SS: “My grandfather (a dentist) was part of the SS, because if he didn’t, they were going to…pretty much…shut him down.” He goes on to describe the risky situation that his grandfather found himself in, illegally protecting Jewish people during the height of German anti-Semitism.
