The Shoah Foundation, with nearly 52,000 videotaped testimonies from Holocaust survivors and other witnesses, is the largest visual history archive in the world. The mission of the Foundation is to overcome prejudice, intolerance, and bigotry—and the suffering they cause—through the educational use of its visual history testimonies.

The Shoah Foundation relies on global partnerships to achieve three goals: to preserve and provide access to the archive; to build and support educational programs; and to develop educational products based on the testimonies collected. Today, 43 institutions in 16 countries provide educators, researchers, and the general public with access to collections of visual history testimonies from the archive, and the Shoah Foundation’s educational programs and resources are reaching nearly two million students in the United States and around the world.
