Picture: Cover of the catalog »Voices of Survival« The Video Archive of the Foundation Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

Between 2007 and 2014 the Foundation Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe produced more than 70 video interviews: Survivors of Nazi persecution talked about their fate, their families and ways of life, their hopes and fears. In this way, they bequeathed an archive for future generations that is characterized by the need for disclosure of their memories and for which they have set themselves a difficult task: Speaking in spite of everything. The carefully developed interviews are shown in the exhibition of the Holocaust Memorial and the Internet. The catalog contains brief biographies of the interviewees and information about the video archive.

»›I am the Voice of the Six Million‹. The Video Archive at the Information Centre«

»Was damals Recht war ... – Soldaten und Zivilisten vor Gerichten der Wehrmacht«

»I am the voice of the six million tortured and murdered Jews, and I am also the voice of the lucky few – the voice of the survivors«, said Sabina Van Der Linden-Wolanski in a speech during the opening of the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe on 10 May, 2005. Speaking on behalf of those who were murdered and at the same time speaking for one’s self – many survivors see this as their task and responsibility. This book deals with aspects such as the history, meaning and analysis of video testimonies, and the opportunities and problems of presenting such testimonies. The volume also contains analyses of life stories recorded specifically for the Video Archive at the Information Centre underneath the Field of Stelae.
