Shoah Foundation's Visual History Archive Renewal 2017-2018
Begins:January 1, 2018
Ends:December 31, 2018
The Visual History Archive is USC Shoah Foundation's online portal, housing more than 54,000 video testimonies of survivors and witnesses of genocide. Initially a repository of Holocaust testimony, the Archive has expanded significantly to include survivor and witness testimony from four other genocidal events: the Armenian Genocide (1915-1923), the Nanjing Massacre (1937), the Genocide Against the Tutsi in Rwanda (1994) and the Guatemalan Genocide (1978-1996).
Each collection in the Visual History Archive adds context for the others, providing multiple pathways to learn from the eyewitnesses of history across time, locations, cultures and social-political circumstances.
Usage statistics are available through USCSF until the VHA moves to the PQ platform. Statistics cover number of users; number of logins; number of video views; searches by type.

P.S. Please note: You must login earlier to download/install the Zoom application for this meeting. We use Zoom because WebEx does not allow for live audio and video to play simultaneously. When you join the session, please use either the phone or the computer audio, but not both; this will eliminate any echoing/feedback. Also, the VOIP audio option works by clicking on the “Join from PC, MAC, etc.” URL. Just make sure to have your computer speaker turned on, and we should be able to hear you speak clearly.
