In the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, Lou Keune and colleagues interviewed dozens of textile workers, women and men. These interviews were used for several publications about the history of the downfall of the Tilburg textile industry, and its consequences for ordinary people. The interviews also contain many stories about ordinary life.

A number of the interviews are retold and available via the website

Geheugen van Tilburg.

 

The entire collection of interviews from Lou Keune’s archive is not yet available (Textielmuseum Tilburg).
