JFK Assassination - What They Told Me

by William Holiday

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
This book is a collection of accounts of the JFK Assassination by eyewitness and researchers.
I began to acquire information from researchers, critics, and witnesses. My collection has grown to hundreds of photographs, film segments, slide shows, interviews, recordings, and documents. I am an educator. I am not a researcher. I am not a 'conspiracy theorist' – nor do I advocate for the 'lone nut assassin' version promoted by the Warren Commission. My purpose is to share what I have learned from eyewitnesses to various aspects of the assassination. Some in this book are researchers, some are doctors who tried to save President Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald, one is an ambulance driver, another a 17-year-old young lady in Dealey Plaza on November 22, one an automobile salesman in the plaza, one a deaf man who witnessed activity in the parking lot behind the fence separating the Grassy Knoll from the rest of Dealey Plaza.
About the author
William Holiday is a career educator who has had this said about him, ""Bill Holiday is a teacher like no other. Fiercely independent in his no-textbook-style curriculum, he encourages students to examine topics from new angles. For many students he may be the first teacher they encounter who opens the door for them to consider history critically – not just to memorize the facts and repeat them back. He is aware that much of the representation of the past found in educational material is not only bland, but also biased – and does not include every voice. For this reason he never shies away from difficult topics, and allows students to veer from the curriculum to follow the topics and perspectives they think truly matter. Students taking a Holiday course will find themselves challenged with the amount of independent work they are expected to do, but will also find they are wildly passionate about the work because they are able to make their own discoveries and choose the topics they are pursuing. He fosters every student's voice and is always thinking of creative ways to showcase student work, and to show them their thoughts and passions are relevant and powerful."
