Pricing is now available for USC Shoah Foundation's Visual History Archive. This amazing resource allows users to search through and view 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).

Pricing has been negotiated for all Canadian post-secondary institutions via ConsortiaCanada.

Historically, it has been difficult to get access to this material. In January 2016, ProQuest solidified a partnership with USC Shoah Foundation. This partnership has enabled conversations to more easily move forward.

Description: 

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.

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.
