Project Main Details
The voiceovers will be the parts of real people in history (via their documents, letters, and articles) to give the museum patrons a window into this world. They will be in videos used in an AV Unit where visitors can learn more about the Merci Cars. All of these accounts took place in the mid to late 1940’s. Some took place during WWII, and others were just after. I encourage those that would like to audition for more than one part to do so. For more information on the Merci Car, please visit a website by one of our research contributors. He is one of the leading experts on the Merci Train and its Cars, although the site is not of the Museum Project.

The company I am with has partnered with the museum to be able to do this project. To learn more about who we are, please visit ************* These are sample of lines from each part:
AMERICAN SOLDIER 1: (M, 23, Southern)
Roll, roll, roll, yammer and snore and fight,
Traveling zoo the whole day through and bed-
lam all the night.
AMERICAN SOLDIER 2: (M, 20, Pennsylvania)
The receptacle for moving troops in France is a boxcar. It has square wheels and square corners.
JULIEN MITCHELL: (M, 19, Ohio)
The only way to sleep was head to foot in two lines across the car. Often, a heavy boot would be in your face.
JOHN FITZMAURICE: (M, 19, Missouri)
Dear Mother & Dad,
I’d like to tell you the story of John J. the hobo. It started in Germany close to Nuremburg when I volunteered for the Pacific, me and 100 more guys.
THEODORE VON GERICHTEN: (M, 22, Ohio)
We … were loaded into the “40 & 8” boxcars for the trip across France. We had to eat and sleep which every way we could manage.
FRENCH GIRL: (F, 9, French)
"It seems that I was 1- year old when Meme offered me for my father, who was a prisoner in Germany. I love Lou Lou very much, but I offer it to you in gratitude for all that the Americans have done for my country..."
FRENCH VETERAN: (M, 28, French)
"I feel the need to tell you what the French people want to express to your great country by this symbolic train."
ADELE SPIRDOWICZ: (F, 17, Syracuse, NY)
How great is a gift from the heart, a precious something sacrificed to show sincere gratitude to another! It may be simple and have little intrinsic value, yet it may mean years of love or only the pain of parting with a trinket close to the heart.
