Introductory Profile: About Kristiana Mulligan

My German grandmother, Kristiana Mulligan was born in Germany in 1941, during World War 2. Her small town in the countryside saw very little fighting during the war. In the interview, my grandmother talks about a very scary air raid experience during her childhood. During this story, she discusses the overall feelings and emotions in their family’s bunker.
During this interview, I learned about some of the experiences my grandmother faced growing up during World War 2 and how they have shaped her to become who she is today.
