Genocide Survivor Testimonies of the USC Visual History Archive

Speaker: Wolf Gruner, Shapell-Guerin Chair in Jewish Studies and Professor of History at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles and Director, USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research

Wolf Gruner will introduce the USC Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive, a repository with over 55,000 video testimonies of survivors and other eyewitnesses of the Holocaust, the Rwandan, Armenian, Cambodian, and Guatemalan genocides, and the Nanjing Massacre in China. The interviews, conducted in 41 languages and 62 countries, are life histories and their subject matter covers the history and culture of the countries of the interviewees’ birth and their lives before, during, and after genocide. Professor Gruner will describe how testimonies can enrich research and change perspectives and understanding of the Holocaust and other genocides.

Open to the public by reservation.  Please contact Robyn Conroy at rconroy@clarku.edu.
