Friends Kathleen O'Dell and Andrea Croley participated in the StoryCorps Mobile Tour to the Ozarks in 2022.

In this StoryCorps conversation, Kathleen O'Dell asks her friend, Andrea Croley, about Croley's family during the World War Two bombing of Dresden, Germany.

Croley was born in Dresden two years before her family fled East Germany, eventually sailing to the United States to begin a new life.
