Holocaust Living History Workshop
The Holocaust Living History Workshop inaugurated in 2008, preserves the memory of the victims and survivors of the Holocaust by linking local students, teachers, interested community members, area Holocaust survivors and their families through use of the Visual History Archive, a large online database of videotaped testimonies by Holocaust survivors. The Workshop performs diverse functions:
- Train the UCSD and San Diego communities to use the Visual History Archive on the UCSD campus;
- Arrange meetings and presentations among local survivors, schools, and community groups;
- Access helpful, related educational materials;
- Provide a venue for Workshop participants to share what they have learned.
This project, under the guidance of Professor Deborah Hertz, directly compliments the objective of the USC Shoah Foundation Institute, which strives to overcome prejudice, intolerance and bigotry through Holocaust education.
