The USC Shoah Foundation has more than 55,000 video testimonies of survivors of genocide and liberators, primarily from the Holocaust but also other genocides, the 1994 Rwandan Tutsi Genocide, the 1937 Nanjing Massacre, the Armenian Genocide that coincided with World War I, and the Guatemalan Genocide, and plans to include more.

This project seeks to collect profiles of people who have been interviewed. To search for a video, visit [] (free login required). Some videos are available on youtube. Only a small percentage of videos can currently be streamed online, but all can be viewed at access sites around the world, and family and others can order copies from the USC Shoah Foundation website.

Profiles of living people can not be added to projects, so as a work-around please add them here or inform the project collaborators.
