We Remember Julio Botton

Tue, 03/16/2021 - 3:57pm

USC Shoah Foundation mourns the passing of Holocaust survivor and friend of the Institute, Julio Botton.

Julio first recorded a testimony for the Visual History Archive in 1998 and in March 2020 recorded a Dimensions in Testimony interactive biography in Spanish. He was also an active speaker for many years with the Museo Memoria y Tolerancia in Mexico City and elsewhere. 

Julio is survived by his wife Dolly, who also recorded a VHA testimony in 1998 and a Spanish-language DiT interview in 2020. Their memories are preserved in the Visual History Archive and Julio's memory will forever be a blessing.

We invite you to take a look at Julio and Dolly as the loving couple took part in the trailblazing Dimensions in Testimony project in Mexico City.
