The Holocaust Living History Workshop

The ending of the Oscar-winning 1993 film Schindler'’s List was only the beginning.

Nearly immediately after the credits rolled in 1993, the film’s iconic director Steven Spielberg founded what became the Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation — seeking to record and digitize an incredible number of first-person testimonies from Holocaust survivors.



The Jewish Studies Program publishes its newsletter, the Jewish Studies Bulletin twice a year.
