Holocaust testimony

When there are no longer any first-generation Holocaust survivors, their stories will live on through recorded testimony. The preservation, presentation and use of the testimony – and related personal photos and artefacts – collected by the Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive and Melbourne's Jewish Holocaust Centre will be discussed by:

  • Mark Baker, Australian Centre for Jewish Civilisation, Monash University
  • Jayne Josem, curator and head of collections, Jewish Holocaust Centre
  • Konrad Kwiet, adjunct professor in Jewish Studies, Sydney University and resident historian at the Sydney Jewish Museum
  • Michele Langfield, School of History – Heritage & Society, Deakin University

This talk is part of the Making Public Histories series presented in partnership with the Monash University Institute for Public History and the History Council of Victoria.
