Identifier: 013

Content Description

From the Collection:

Started in 2013, the Museum of History and Holocaust Education's Oral History Program preserves first-hand accounts of past events through recorded film. To date, over 50 individuals have participated, contributing valuable content to museum programming, exhibitions, and K-12 curriculum.

The MHHE Oral History Program includes two ongoing projects, the Legacy Series and Immigrant Stories. Through the Legacy Series, we preserve the experiences of Holocaust survivors, World War II veterans, home front workers, and others who lived during the Second World War. Through the Immigrant Stories oral history project, we interview individuals who have first or second-hand experiences of immigration.

More resources, including educator resources and links to shorter video clips, can be found at the MHHE's Legacy Series homepage.
