These recordings are powerful personal accounts of the Holocaust from Jewish survivors living in Britain
The testimonies on this site are drawn from two major oral history programmes:
– The Living Memory of the Jewish Community – which between 1987 and 2000 gathered 186 audio life story interviews with Jewish survivors of the Holocaust and their children. It was initiated by National Life Stories based in the BL’s oral history section and funded by a number of organisations including the Harold Hyam Wingate Foundation, the John S Cohen Foundation and the Porjes Charitable Trust. A large number of volunteer interviewers, led by Jennifer Wingate and Bill Williams, were recruited and trained, and recordings were made with a wide range of survivors from many parts of Nazi-occupied Europe, with pre-war refugees (such as Kindertransport child migrants) and a smaller number of children of survivors. The main programme of survivor interviews was later supplemented by interviews with the children of survivors – the Second Generation Also included here are a smaller number of recordings with UK born members of the Jewish Community,
– The Holocaust Survivors’ Centre Interviews was a National Life Stories collaborative project with the Jewish Care Holocaust Survivors’ Centre, a Jewish social centre in north London for survivors who were in Europe during the Second World War or who came to the UK as refugees. The project ran between 1993 and 1998 and gathered a total of 154 audio life story testimonies.
