Presentation: "Fortunoff Video Archives for Holocaust Testimonies"
The Stephen Roth Institute is happy to invite you to a presentation titled "Fortunoff Video Archives for Holocaust Testimonies"
Presented by the Archives director Mr. Stephen Naron.
Originally a 1979 film project collection in New Haven, Connecticut, the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies was donated in 1981 to Yale University and is today part of Yale University Library. The Fortunoff Archive currently holds more than 4,400 testimonies, which are comprised of over 12,000 recorded hours of videotape. Testimonies were produced in cooperation with thirty-six affiliated projects across North America, South America, Europe, and Israel, and each project maintains a duplicate collection of locally recorded videotapes. The lecture will discuss the archive’s collections and projects, ranging from testimonies to ethnomusicological recordings, documentary film series, podcasts and networks.
