Oral hstory would refer to the way in which Vladek tells his story. A memoir is a biography or historical work written by someone with first hand knowledge, or someone who has access to that type of knowledge. These types of texts are important to read because they allow the reader to experience the events, rather than simply read the facts as seen by a historian.
