BOSTON, Massachusetts – September 14, 2015 – A Kickstarter campaign to translate historical WWII documents was just announced. Olav Voilestøl, was a political prisoner during World War II. He was part of the underground resistance movement in Norway and helped to publish a newspaper that was based on reports from the allied forces in different parts of the world. Some historians claim that the German occupying forces were weakened because they expended a lot of effort on trying to suppress these newspapers to persuade Norwegians that Hitler was winning the war.
Voilestøl’s granddaughters inherited the documents and they would like to translate them, which is useful because it makes their historical point of view and value available to a wider audience. The original texts along with the translation will be donated to the library of a major university that has expressed interest in expanding their collection of World War II documents. However, before these documents can be translated, Voilestøl’s granddaughters need help. That’s why they launched this Kickstarter campaign. The goal of this project is to raise $3,000 by October 3, 2015. The funds raised will go towards completing the translation.
To help translate these historical documents, please visit the Kickstarter campaign or click here. Perks will be delivered by December 2015.
Please keep in mind this is an “all-or-nothing” deal, which means if the campaign does not reach the funding goal then the project cannot move forward. So know that any amount given can make a difference, and this is an incredible opportunity to be a part of a special campaign! Help reach the goal by sharing this on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. The more people know about this, the more support the campaign will receive.
