The archive’s collection consists of over 4,400 testimonies that record the experiences of over 4,000 survivors, witnesses, bystanders and liberators of the Holocaust. Our testimonies are available for research and can be watched in thirty-seven partner locations worldwide, including at Yale University’s Manuscripts and Archives.
Researchers can visit either Yale University’s Manuscripts and Archives reading room or our partner locations to view testimonies from our collection. You do not need to be part of the Yale community or affiliated with an academic institution to use our testimonies. For more information about visiting Manuscripts and Archives for research, including their location, hours, and registration procedures, please visit the MSSA website. Our testimonies are not just available for research–we also release excerpts of them for use in publications, documentaries, films, podcasts, and other media. Licensing is required and limits on testimony usage may apply. We encourage you to contact us to learn more.
