Importance of Contemporary Testimonies

Recording a new collection of contemporary Holocaust survivor testimonies serves as an important bridge across generations. Firsthand accounts of survivors will give insight into their time before, during, and after the Holocaust, including living through the pandemic, contemporary antisemitism, racism, and other identity-hate violence. This shared contemporary experience with current audiences and updated perspective will spark connections and lasting impact.
