Holocaust Survivors’ Recorded Interviews

These interviews were conducted in recent years as part of a larger initiative – The Living Memory of the Jewish Community, which is itself subsumed under the National Life Stories Project in England. Over 440 hours of recordings can be listened to. Most interviews have extensive abstracts as well as a full transcript. Visit the British Library’s Voices of the Holocaust section where audio and printed versions of “survivor testimonies” are arranged by topic.

    Kind regards,
