Introductory Profile: About Hye Morehouse

I interviewed Hye Morehouse, my grandmother. From the age of three to six, she struggled through the Korean war and the repercussions that came afterward. Born in a hard time, she was about an hour and a half out from Seoul. She had trouble remembering a lot of things -- mostly specific details -- but despite that, she was a really interesting interviewee. Obviously, she didnít forget everything, and thatís probably thanks to all the trauma that came with her experiences. For example, her family having some things in the early stages of the war gave food and shelter to another family who turned out to be communists and tried to kill her father. Her father had to run and hide in the mountains until the war was over and things had calmed down.
