"For Me, It’s Never Over"

Over the past five years, USC Shoah Foundation has documented the stories of experts and witnesses to contemporary antisemitism as part of our Countering Antisemitism Through Testimony Program (CATT).
Holocaust Survivor Judah Samet first gave testimony to USC Shoah Foundation in 1997. Last year, as part of the CATT testimony collection, he spoke to us again. This time Judah wasn’t talking about his experiences in Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen. He was talking about witnessing the deadly attack on worshippers at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh just two years ago.
Today, on the second anniversary of the Tree of Life attack, we share the voices of Judah and two others connected to Synagogue. We do so as a reminder that first-hand testimony is instrumental in both documenting the past and securing a better future.
