Testimonies of the Shoah
Simone Veil and Emmanuel Hoog, head of the National Audiovisual Institute, announced the completion of the first programme ‘Testimonies of the Shoah, a collection of 115 audiovisual testimonies of former deportees, hidden children, Resistance workers, Justes and other witnesses of the period of Occupation.
These testimonies accompany five ‘memory actors’ who contextualise the words of each witness. These testimonies are available on the Internet, with a well-designed interface that allows the user to navigate each testimony and to search using keywords.
Twenty testimonies will be freely available, the others will be available with a password. The Foundation intends for them to be used as a resource for teachers, students and researchers.
