Closed Captioning Available for Select IWitness Activities

USC Shoah Foundation is pleased to provide closed captioning for IWitness activities and the IWitness Video Challenge, thanks to a grant from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

By adding closed captioning, USC Shoah Foundation ensures that all students, including those who are deaf or hard of hearing, can watch testimony, hear the stories of genocide survivors, and construct their own responses in video projects and word clouds.

Closed captioning has been added to the testimony clips and videos within the following IWitness activities:
