The Oral/Visual History Project
The Holocaust Museum & Education Center of Southwest Florida has undertaken the task of making sure the personal testimonies of all of our local Survivors, Liberators, Resisters and Witnesses are videotaped. It is essential that we document the history of these lives so that they are not forgotten. Through generous grants from the Community Foundation of Collier County, the Jewish Federation of Collier County and the State of Florida, the Museum has been able to locate and begin recording the stories of more than 50 people living in Southwest Florida who in some way experienced the Holocaust first hand.
Personal connection is essential in making history real for young people. Having the opportunity to meet a survivor or liberator is sometimes a once-in-a-lifetime event. The Oral/Visual History Project will allow these important personal stories to make difference in our lives for many years to come.
If you or anyone you know is a Survivor, Liberator, Resistor, Rescuer or Witness to the Holocaust and would like to participate in this project, please contact Hadassah Schulman for more information: (239) 498-5271 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
