The goal of this project is to document and preserve the testimonies of Ottawa Holocaust survivors as primary oral historical resources that will allow future generations of students, researchers, teachers, and others to hear and see the people who experienced and witnessed the genocidal policies and crimes of the Nazis and their collaborators.

The project will ensure the preservation of Ottawa Holocaust survivors’ accounts and their experiences before, during, and after the Holocaust. These recorded testimonies would become a powerful pedagogical tool to be used in any educational institution or setting and would allow Carleton professors and students to explore online the unique power of survivors’ memoirs.
