We are pleased to share the voices and conversations of our community from StoryCorps Phoenix. StoryCorps Phoenix is the project that records the stories of everyday people and archives them at the Library of Congress.

The StoryCorps Mobile Booth was parked at the Phoenix Art Museum and was been very busy. We’ll air a conversation each Monday on KJZZ as part of the Phoenix visit.

Today, a conversation between Ruth Jurhill and Dale Evans.

Ruth and her family were Dutch citizens living in what was at the time the  Dutch East Indies but would soon become Indonesia.

During the Indonesian Revolution, it was not safe for many Dutch citizens to live there. Ruth and her family were forced to move and start over.

She and her daughter Dale came to StoryCorps Phoenix.
