War Diaries

war-diaries-ipad-screen-240This is the first installation of “Be Your Own Publisher” our technology. The book app is managed from a WordPress website, allowing The War Diaries Project  to add new books and make updates from WordPress.

The free War Diaries app for the iPad is an extension of the exhibition. It includes Tim McLaughlin’s complete diary and military journal; each page can be magnified to see the details. The War Diaries app also includes a series of stories by Peter Maass and photographs by Gary Knight that delve into the invasion and its aftermath. The app complements the exhibition and stands alone as a digital document that tells its own story.

3 Stories

This collection of photography and writing captures a side of the conflicts in both Turkey and Iraqi Kurdistan that is rarely seen. Photographer David Gross and writer Nicholas Birch intimately explored three stories from this war-torn region. One story asks how Iraqi Kurdistan protects itself in the face of Arab intimidation. Another looks at how arming poor villagers can backfire. The third is a series of audio interviews and portraits of courageous fighters for human rights in Turkey.

Russian California

This app brings the adventures of California’s earliest explorers to life. Read about the wealthy Russian count who romanced the beautiful daughter of the Spanish Presidio commander, but died en route to Moscow before he could claim his bride. There’s also the story of the serf who rose to power as a leader of sea-faring hunters, who narrowly escaped being murdered after a shipwreck on the Olympic Peninsula. You’ll hear the tale of a Russian deserter who helped lead the Chumash Indian revolt in Santa Barbara, along with the story of St. Peter the Aleut, an Alaskan native hunter who was tortured and killed by a Spanish priest for refusing to renounce his adopted Russian Orthodox faith. You’ll also hear the true voices of Californian and Alaskan natives whose skill and courage were critical to the survival of these early Russian settlers.
