LA Weekly names Tree of Testimony "Best Video Art Exhibit" of 2012

Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust installation features all of the Institute's 51,696 testimonies

LA Weekly's annual Best of LA 2012 honored the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust's Tree of Testimony exhibit with the award for "Best Video Art Exhibit." The interactive exhibit immerses visitors in survivors' memories from the Institute's Visual History Archive.

Mark Rothman, Executive Director of the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust, wrote about the Tree of Testimony in the summer 2012 issue of PastForward. "On these screens, we can display all of the testimonies in one space over one year," he said. "Every family that contributed to the Visual History Archive should take comfort knowing that their loved one's testimony will be seen and heard by our visitors."
