Local residents share their stories in interviews conducted by Plater Robinson, the Institute's Holocaust Education specialist.

Oral histories of Holocaust survivors are an important resource for researchers and educators. The survivor's personal recollections provide insights into events as experienced and interpreted by the historical actors themselves. As always, oral histories must be used judiciously and readers are encouraged to consult other historical sources in order to develop a more complete understanding of the Holocaust.

We recommend that you always carefully examine the sources for the materials you find on the Internet and confirm that the organizations that sponsor these web sites have a legitimate physical address, telephone number, and an accountable and credentialed staff.
