    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.
