USC Shoah Foundation is committed to expanding its archive to include testimony from survivors and witnesses of other genocides and crimes against humanity, and to make such testimony available for educational use around the world, alongside more than 55,500 testimonies of Holocaust survivors and other witnesses.
To that end, USC Shoah Foundation works with partners around the world, sharing the expertise the Institute acquired through the collection, indexing, preservation, and dissemination of the testimonies that are currently in the Visual History Archive.
Today the Visual History Archive contains video testimonies from the 1915 Armenian Genocide, the 1937 Nanjing Massacre in China and the 1994 Rwandan Tutsi Genocide.
Each collection adds context for the others, providing multiple pathways to learn from the eyewitnesses of history across time, locations, cultures and social-political circumstances.
The video shows select clips from survivors of the Holocaust, as well as other genocides that have occurred in recent history.
