Czech Republic - Prague Gets Access to Holocaust Survivors Database
Czech Republic - Prague has become the third European capital after Berlin and Budapest to have access to a unique U.S.-based database of Holocaust survivor testimonies.
Project coordinator Jitka Drahokoupilova says Prague’s Center of Visual History Malakh began on Friday to offer access to the archive of the USC Shoah Foundation Institute, a Los Angeles-based organization founded by director Steven Spielberg.
With a collection of nearly 52,000 video testimonies from Jewish survivors in 32 languages, representing 56 countries, including the Czech Republic, the archive is one of the largest visual history archive in the world.
Drahokoupilova says the center located at Prague’s Charles University offers the service to anyone free of charge.
