USC Shoah Foundation Announces ‘Preserving the Legacy’ Initiative
From the Visual History Archive
Day 34 of 70 Days of Testimony: Frieda Aaron on camp illness
Impact in Profile
Meet Judy Janec
The initiative will use the Institute’s state-of-the-art infrastructure to digitize, index and integrate videotaped Holocaust testimony taken by other organizations around the world into the Visual History Archive.
Frieda Aaron describes the trauma of being sick with Typhus in the camp and shares details of her experience in the camp hospital. This is the 34th testimony clip in the series 70 Days of Testimony: Leading up to the 70th Anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz.
An average day at the office for Judy Janec can take place anywhere, and at any time, but the assignment is the same: to index video testimonies from Holocaust survivors and witnesses.
