Introduction

Introducing Season 2

“Through their recorded testimonies, we get a small glimpse into the unimaginable experiences that shaped them—and shaped our world. Their voices are a stark reminder of the millions of people who did not live to tell their stories.”

This second season of “Those Who Were There” is produced in affiliation with the Museum of Jewish Heritage—A Living Memorial to the Holocaust. The Museum of Jewish Heritage began recording Holocaust testimonies in 1989. It was part of a cooperative effort with the Fortunoff Video Archive to document the experiences of Holocaust survivors and witnesses. In all, the Museum of Jewish Heritage gathered nearly 600 testimonies.
