Project : University of Houston
A student at the University of Houston interviews Domenick Molinaro on his life and Houston’s history after his arrival in 1960. Born in Germany, the interviewee describes his rough upbringing alongside the backdrop of World War II and his life in service. He then details his coming to America, his assimilation, and serving in the Army and the National Guard during the occupation of West Berlin, where he was stationed at Checkpoint Charlie. He answers questions on the development of Houston after the war, the growth of the city, its demographic and social changes, and historical occurrences. Ending, Molinaro compared the United States and Germany, and Germany’s “Americanization.”
