Days of Infamy

In the days following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, the Library of Congress asked Americans to talk about their reactions to the coming of war. The Library again asked Americans about their reactions in the weeks and months following Sept.11, 2001. Those voices of Americans are brought together by narrator Elana Hadler Perl in a special report from the Center for Documentary Studies and American RadioWorks: Days of Infamy: December 7, 1941, and September 11, 2001.
