Life After the Holocaust: Stories of Holocaust Survivors After The War

Perhaps no event in the 20th century (or in recorded history) has been as well-documented and archived as the Holocaust that took place in Nazi Germany during the late 1930s and 1940s. Many groups and organizations have sought to place some of the materials they have collected online, and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is one such organization that should be applauded for their efforts, which include this recent online collection. This particular collection features interviews with six Holocaust survivors who came to the United States after their experiences. With a somber background of harvest-colored leaves on thin branches, the site presents narratives organized into one of several themes, including “Speaking Out”, “Faith, Guilt & Responsibility”, and “Arriving in New York”. Each interview is intercut with narration that helps explain the background of each survivor’s story, which helps unfamiliar listeners with the context of each experience. Tremendously powerful, this site could be used in the classroom with students, or as a learning tool in users’ homes.
