Importance of Contemporary Testimonies
Recording a new collection of Holocaust survivor testimonies serves as an important bridge across generations. Firsthand accounts of survivors will not only offer insights into their lives before and during the war, but will allow them to offer perspectives on issues such as genocides that occurred after the Holocaust, resurgent antisemitism, and other current events.
This shared experience with contemporary audiences and updated perspective will spark connections and lasting impact.
