Nazi Germany and the Holocaust

Holocaust Survivor Testimonies

“Witnesses and Education” is a series of testimony films in which survivors recount their life stories at the locations in which the events transpired. The survivors are accompanied on this journey by trained professionals from the International School for Holocaust Studies, and thus the orientation of the questions is pedagogical in nature, alongside outlines of the broader historical events that came to bear on the survivor’s story. The series, select films of which are available in up to 15 languages, has proven a great success, and has been viewed by tens of thousands of educators, students, and public officials around the world.

The "Witnesses and Education" project was produced jointly by the International School for Holocaust Studies at Yad Vashem and the Center for Multimedia Assisted Instruction at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, with the generous support of the Claims Conference and the Adelson Family Foundation.
