Chamber of the Holocaust Museum (Israel)
The Chamber of the Holocaust Museum is located on Mt. Zion in Jerusalem. The Chamber of the Holocaust predates Yad Vashem as Israel’s museum dedicated to Holocaust remembrance. This interactive website offers galleries, movies, and other Holocaust-related images and information.
Yale’s Holocaust video, created by the Holocaust Survivors Film Project, Inc. collects videotaped testimonies of Holocaust survivors, including those in the Emmy award-winning documentary “Forever Yesterday” and “About the Holocaust”, a documentary for secondary schools. These testimonial videos are currently housed at Yale University’s Sterling Memorial Library.
Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation
The University of Southern California’s Shoah Foundation Institute continues the project created by Steven Spielberg while filming Schindler’s List. The project seeks to collect recorded interviews with Holocaust survivors, rescuers, liberators, and war crime trial participants to make them available to the public. Over 52,000 interviews have been recorded and digitally indexed. The foundation also provides information about contemporary human rights violations in the international spectrum.
Voice Vision Holocaust Survivor Oral History Archive
The University of Michigan-Dearborn’s Dr. Sidney Bolkosky interviewed Holocaust survivors and recorded their testimony. The tapes, transcripts, and audio versions of those interviews are available through the Voice Vision website.
Voices of the Holocaust
This Illinois Institute of Technology project to publish volumes of interview typescripts giving first-hand accounts of Holocaust survivors, audio-reproductions of original wire recordings, maps and essays is a continuing project. The goal of this website’s interactive approach is to create a place for scholars, students, and the public to navigate through interview translations while listening to the voices of survivors and pinpointing the geographic locations discussed in the interviews.
