Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies: Achievements and Challenges 1982-2012

Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies: Achievements and Challenges 1982-2012, marks the 30th anniversary of the Fortunoff Archive, founded in 1981 and inaugurated in 1982. The exhibit displays the history of the Fortunoff Video Archive, including related items from Yale University Library collections, as well as those donated by testimony donors. It also includes works resulting from the use of the testimonies, including those by Yale students. The exhibit is located in the courtyard corridor of Sterling Memorial Library.

The archive is dedicated to the recording, collection, and preservation of videotaped oral testimonies of survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust. The holdings contain 4,500 testimonies comprising over 12,000 hours of videotape, recorded in cooperation with 37 affiliate projects in North America, South America, Europe, Israel, and the former Soviet Union. The Archive advises students, scholars, museums, and educational associations; catalogs its testimonies to make them intellectually accessible; and streams educational programs of testimony excerpts from its website www.library.yale.edu/testimonies. The Archive is currently migrating the entire collection to digital formats for preservation and access purposes.

There will also be a conference to mark the anniversary on Sunday October 21. More info can be found at: http://www.library.yale.edu/testimonies/
