USC Shoah Foundation Institute Launches New Website
As part of the expansion of its educational work, the USC Shoah Foundation Institute, home to the largest video archive of testimonies of Holocaust survivors and other witnesses, has redesigned its website (www.college.usc.edu/vhi) and made new educational resources available online.
Numerous resources for educators are available on the new site. These include online exhibits and classroom products and lessons, such as "Segments for the Classroom," a set of downloadable clip reels that teachers can use to create original lessons for their students.
Visitors to the new Web site can use the Online Testimony Viewer to watch clips of testimony that cover topics such as life before the war, life in the ghettos and camps, liberation, and life after the war.
The mission of the USC Shoah Foundation Institute is to overcome prejudice, intolerance and bigotry — and the suffering they cause — through the educational use of the visual history testimonies. For more information, visit www.college.usc.edu/vhi.
