Voices from the Holocaust

In 1946, one year after the end of World War 2 in Europe, Dr. David P. Boder traveled to Europe to record stories of Holocaust survivors in their own words. Over a period of three months, he visited refugee camps in France, Switzerland, Italy, and Germany, and was able to record over 90 hours of first-hand testimony.

These recordings represent the earliest known oral histories of the Holocaust, which are available through this online archive.
