Customer testimonials
• “Oral testimonies provide essential historical and emotional truths about the
Holocaust.”
• “Faculty from a range of disciplines are interested in furthering their research through
this archive.”
• “All of us hope to complement our printed sources with these oral testimonies as we
write about history, language, economics, trauma studies, literature, and
more. Many of us have also begun using these testimonies in the classroom,
encouraging our students to delve into them in their own research.”
• “Seeing and hearing an individual who had actually witnessed the concentration
camps had a powerful emotional impact on students and brought them closer to
understanding the absolute monstrosity of the Holocaust.”
• “The Visual History Archive is a truly unique and extraordinary resource for education
and research…The Archive is an unparalleled resource to students and faculty in
many fields, but particularly to undergraduates studying the Holocaust and to
graduate students in our new M.A. program in War and Society in the Department of
History. The purchase of the perpetual license is yet another demonstration of
Chapman University’s commitment to research.”

Customer testimonials • “Oral testimonies provide essential historical and emotional truths about the Holocaust.” • “Faculty from a range of disciplines are interested in furthering their research through this archive.” • “All of us hope to complement our printed sources with these oral testimonies as we write about history, language, economics, trauma studies, literature, and more. Many of us have also begun using these testimonies in the classroom, encouraging our students to delve into them in their own research.” • “Seeing and hearing an individual who had actually witnessed the concentration camps had a powerful emotional impact on students and brought them closer to understanding the absolute monstrosity of the Holocaust.” • “The Visual History Archive is a truly unique and extraordinary resource for education and research…The Archive is an unparalleled resource to students and faculty in many fields, but particularly to undergraduates studying the Holocaust and to graduate students in our new M.A. program in War and Society in the Department of History.
