Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of 24 videotaped interviews of Delaware residents who were Holocaust survivors, witnesses, or liberators. The interviews were conducted between 1989 and 1995 as part of a project coordinated by the Halina Wind Preston Holocaust Education Committee of the Jewish Federation of Delaware, in association with the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies at Yale University. A compilation of these interviews was broadcast by public television WHYY Wilmington/Philadelphia as "Holocaust Survivors Speak." A four-part video-recording of this production is also included in the collection.

The collection includes BETA video-recordings of the original interviews and VHS videocassette format for master copies as well as user copies.

The collection is arranged in alphabetical order by name of the person interviewed. This finding aid lists the name of the interviewee, the number of tapes, and the date of the interview. For many of the interviews, pre-interview forms with
biographical data and/or summary interview notes are available in the library.

 

Restrictions: The videocassette tapes of the testimonies are available to the public for research, with the exception of the tape for Arnold Kerr. Please see manuscripts librarian for assistance.
