Visual History Archives (VHA)

Visual History Archives


For the first time in France a university is hosting the complete Visual History Archive of USC Shoah Foundation.
We are pleased to announced that the American University of Paris now has access to the Visual History Archives thanks to the George and Irina Schaeffer Center for the Study of Genocide, Human Rights, and Conflict Prevention.

“The Visual History Archive® is USC Shoah Foundation’s online portal that allows users to search through and view more than 54,000 video testimonies of survivors and witnesses of genocide. Initially a repository of Holocaust testimony, the Archive has expanded significantly to include survivor and witness testimony from four other genocidal events: the Armenian Genocide (1915-1923), the Nanjing Massacre (1937), the Genocide Against the Tutsi in Rwanda (1994) and the Guatemalan Genocide (1978-1996).” (Source USC Shoah)
