Holocaust Education Video Clips - Survivor Testimonials
We can preserve, archive, and share our history using real-life video testimonials recorded directly from our ancestors, and those who have witnessed history. I have created a series of Holocaust Education clips recorded directly from my parents and my uncle who lived through and witnessed the Holocaust as Jewish teenagers living in France.
These testimonial video clips come from Steven Spielberg's "Survivors of the Shoah" project. The complete 3-4 hour testimonial tapes, of my mom, dad, and uncle, reside in the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC and at USC's Visual History Foundation. I extracted and uploaded short clips onto my Youtube (bevmargo) site, so that everyone can hear their stories, one episode at a time. They are appropriate for students of all ages.
My parents survived thanks the kindness and bravery of the blessed few who helped them.
