StoryCorps: Karen Helms Ward and Sarah Ward
Karen Helms Ward was born in the United States shortly after World War II. Growing up, the conflict rarely crossed her mind.
However, when her husband Charles got a job in The Hague years later, she joined him, and while there, she made an unexpected connection.
Karen recently spoke to her daughter Sarah about the experience.
