The US Holocaust Memorial Museum’s oral history collection is one of the largest and most diverse resources for Holocaust testimonies in the world. In addition to conducting interviews itself, the Museum actively collects interviews from individuals as well as other institutions.
The collection contains interviews with survivors of the Holocaust and persecution by the Nazis and their collaborators. Interviewees include Jews, Roma (Gypsies), Polish Gentiles, Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, and political prisoners. Testimonies of liberators, non-Jewish witnesses, and rescuers are also included in the collection.
