A two-part presentation of how the book, Without the Nasty Bits, came to be.

“One day I would like you to go to the places that I have been and to see the things that I have seen but without the nasty bits.” Eighty years after World War Two, encouraged by his father’s stories of survival and determination, a son travels to Poland to follow his father’s experiences as a soldier and a prisoner of war.

Hear about author Alan Wood's personal experience of his journey to Upper Silesia Poland in 2018 as well as the research process and material used to write the book, through an illustrated presentation. 

The talk covers the digital recording of an oral history using family narration and might be useful to people who wish to embark upon a similar task. 

There will be copies of the book on hand for attendees who may wish to buy a copy.
