The Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies has been invited to join an international effort to raise greater awareness and dissemination of Holocaust testimonies worldwide.

At a recent two-day conference in London, the UK Holocaust Memorial Foundation announced plans to build a web-based portal of the United Kingdom’s collections of Holocaust Testimonies by spring 2024. The proposed working group will also include the Association of Jewish Refugee Voices, British Library, Imperial War Museum, and University of Southern California Shoah Foundation.
