The Voice of the Survivors

Throughout our website the voices of the survivors infuse our online exhibitions, historical narratives, teaching units and ceremonies with content and with meaning. We have gathered many of those testimonies in this section where they can be easily accessed by either topic or location. This section will continue to grow as more and more testimonies are added to the website.

"For whoever listens to a witness becomes a witness"

Excerpt from a speech given by Elie Wiesel at Yad Vashem



The videos are organized here according to the birthplaces of the survivors. Since the videos are gathered from various sources, some videos contain testimony of survivors from numerous locations all relating to a particular topic. In such cases, the video appears in several locations, with the survivor from the particular place of origin appearing first in the title of the video.
