“We share a commitment to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust and to honour those who stood against it.”
-- Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust
A five-part exhibit of testimony from USC Shoah Foundation’s Visual History Archive will be on display at UNESCO’s Headquarters in Paris from 27 January until 13 February 2014.
The exhibit, “Journeys Through the Holocaust,” prepared jointly by UNESCO and the USC Shoah Foundation, was curated by Dr. Amy M. Carnes, the USC Shoah Foundation Associate Director of Education – Evaluation and Scholarship. It features video screens playing testimony clips that cover five aspects of journeys, both literal and figurative, through the Holocaust: Flight, Deportation, Liberation, Immigration, and Aftermath.
The clips, in English and French, are from 14 survivors and two other witnesses, including a soldier who liberated Buchenwald and an American war crimes trial investigator.
