Archival Access at Salzburg University Brings Testimonies to Austria

Tue, 06/21/2011 - 12:00am

Salzburg University will provide local access to the USC Shoah Foundation Institute’s Visual History Archive containing almost 52,000 testimonies of Holocaust survivors and other witnesses, recorded in 56 countries and in 32 languages.

This is the first site in Austria to have access to the entire Visual History Archive, and it is linked to Freie University in Berlin which also has access to the archive in its entirety.  Local Salzburg historian and former survivor interviewer, Albert Lichtblau, was instrumental in arranging access at Salzburg University.
