The Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies

 

The Fortunoff Video Archive comprises more than 12,000 hours of video interviews with Holocaust survivors. The archive emerged from the collection of 183 interviews created in 1979 as part of the Holocaust Survivors Film Project and today comprises more than 4,400 interviews in 22 languages that were either recorded at Yale University or in the framework of partner projects. The individual recordings can be browsed via the online catalogue.

 

For a long time, these recordings could only be viewed on site at Yale University. In the framework of an agreement concluded between Yale University and the Vienna Wiesenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies (VWI) in January 2017 the interviews can now – following registration and ordering of materials – also be viewed at the VWI. A tutorial explains the procedure and includes tips for expanded searches.
