Originally a photography project, Holocaust Survivors has developed into a touring exhibit and a Website. Directed by John Menszer, this moving and well-constructed site is an outstanding adjunct to any class or course that discusses the Holocaust. University courses, especially larger surveys, often deal with the Shoah on a broad institutional level in an attempt to impart the sheer scale of the mass-murders. What is lost is the individual and personal experiences of loss and survival in these years. This site, with its photo gallery, survivor stories, and especially the audio gallery, offers students or any visitor invaluable personal accounts of the Holocaust. To help users place these in the larger context, the site provides an historical introduction, an encyclopedia, a collection of primary documents and scholarly articles, a bibliography, and related links. The site also hosts a discussion board.
