Holocaust Oral History Collection
The 900 Holocaust audio interviews and transcripts reflect the vast scope of oral histories collected by researchers which have been archived at the Oral History Division of the Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. They include interviews with child survivors of the Holocaust, along with children of Nazis and observers of Nazi persecution, conducted in the early 1960s. These interviews are displayed online, on the catalog of Holocaust Oral History Collection.
The collection developed over the past 60 years as more research was undertaken by established and emerging scholars and questions relating to the experience of Jews under Nazism broadened. Thus, this collection not only gives voice to the experiences of individual survivors but also reflects the development of research and inquiry into this difficult past. This resource should provide an invaluable tool for researchers in Holocaust studies.
Interviews in Hebrew and English.
The Foundation for the Memory of the Shoah supported the digitization of these testimonies.
