Between 1994 and 1999, the Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation -- now the USC Shoah Foundation Institute -- interviewed nearly 52,000 survivors and other witnesses of the Holocaust. The Institute interviewed Jewish survivors, homosexual survivors, Jehovah's Witness survivors, liberators and liberation witnesses, political prisoners, rescuers and aid providers, Roma and Sinti (Gypsy) survivors, survivors of Eugenics policies, and war crimes trials participants. The complete archive of these testimonies, which were videotaped in 56 countries and in 32 languages, is now available to Brown students, faculty, and staff for ON-CAMPUS USE ONLY.
Between 2000 and 2010, Centropa (a European non-profit based in Vienna and Budapest) interviewed 1,200 Jewish Holocaust survivors living in Central and Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union and the Balkans, and digitized 22,000 of their photographs. These stories can be found through the Centropa website translated into English (some are in German and/or Hungarian). Academic researchers can request the original language word-for-word transcripts by contacting Centropa through the links provided on the site.
