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 have also made available the following

Alert: There have been reports of faudulent "Holocaust Survivor"
organizations with web sites on the Internet that disseminate false and
malicious materials about legitimate Holocaust Survivors, Holocaust
educators, and historical figures. 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. Click here to
