The importance of this project is validated with each fresh oral history conducted. From one narrator to the next, the fascinating history and unique connections within the Las Vegas community unfold. From the recorded voices, a collection of memories and perspectives of our community is emerging. Narrators talk about coming here and about remaining here; of land development, education, religious, and businesses, and their careers and raising families.
Among the recent oral history interviews are: Myra Berkovitz, Doug Unger, Mike Cherry, Margot Colbert, Sharon Walker, Dorothy Eisenberg, Rabbi Sanford Akselrad, Barbara and Bernie Kaufman, Daryl Alterwitz, Deanne Alterwitz, Steve and Wendy Hart, Faye Steinberg, Jerry Fox, Renee Diamond, Judi Steele, Jerry, Marcy & Doris Welt, Mark Fine, Flora Mason, Mimi Katz.
We enthusiastically look forward to adding many more, which will include recording multiple round tables with Jewish congregations and organizations.
