The Silent Generation

everyone has a story…

documenting social history - through the power of social media


The Silent Generation is a collective, video project, dedicated to the memories, reflections, stories and wisdom of our grandparents and great-grandparents.

The concept is simple: grab your camera or smartphone, sit down with your elderly loved ones, ask the important questions and listen.

Everyone has a story to tell…

question of the month

“Do you remember the day was declared?”

On September 3rd 2019, it will be 80 years since WW2 was declared in Britain. We want to collect the stories from the people that remember the day that changed everything. Ask the question, film the answer and submit your video.
