Oral History Catalog Search
The aim of this catalog is to provide a tool for all those interested in the location of Holocaust oral history collections worldwide. There are over 125 entities represented in this catalog. The collections vary from museums, universities, and other major institutions where thousands of professionally produced interviews are archived; to local community organizations that have a handful of interviews conducted by volunteers; to individual documentary filmmakers who have produced Holocaust testimony for their films.
The catalog contains names, addresses, and contact information for each organization. Where possible, there is a narrative description about the organization and its oral history collection, as well as information about the content of the collection. Additionally, relevant technical information is usually included; for example, number of interviews, formats used, access to the collection, finding aids, etc.
