USC Shoah Foundation's Visual History Archive

USC Shoah Foundation

The USC Shoah Foundation's Visual History Archive is a fully streaming video collection of more than 53,000 primary source testimonies of survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust (Shoah), the Armenian Genocide, the Rwandan Genocide, the Guatemalan Genocide, the Cambodian Genocide, and the Nanjing Massacre. The vast majority of the testimonies contain a complete personal history of life before, during, and after the interviewee's firsthand experience with genocide.

MSU access to the USC Shoah Foundation's Visual History Archive is made possible by a generous gift from Edward Brill and Leslie VanBrandt in honor of their brother, Michael Brill.
