"Why did you emigrate to the United States?" Gerda asked.
Mr. R. let a smile play with his lips. " It was an accident," he said.
"Tell us about it," she encouraged.
He told the story of his emigration. Gerda and I listened. Our recording machine captured his words on a cassette tape.
"Now tell us about moving back to Denmark."
Gerda and I were interviewing in Denmark as a part of the research project, RIBBONS OF MEMORIES, an American-Scandinavian Ethnic Heritage Oral History Program.
