Organized by the USC Dornsife Center for Advanced Genocide Research

In Summer 2021, two USC student research fellows conducted research with testimonies from the USC Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive. Join us to learn more about their research and their experiences working with the testimonies.

Nicholas Bredie (PhD candidate in Literature and Creative Writing, USC) conducted research to contribute to a hybrid work of fiction and non-fiction centered around the life history of his great aunt, who was murdered in 1945 in the Neuengamme concentration camp.

Atharva Tewari (USC undergraduate student, Global Studies and Journalism major) conducted research with the interviews with survivors of anti-Rohingya mass violence in Fall 2017.  The Center's first research fellow to focus exclusively on the Rohingya testimonies, he explored themes of discrimination, belonging, citizenship, and displacement.
