The British Library has put its complete collection of oral testimonies of Shoah survivors online.
Over 440 hours of interviews with 66 people recorded by the library’s sound archive can now be publicly accessed.
Jewish Survivors of the Holocaust covers refugees who escaped Nazi Germany pre-war, and those who survived in hiding or endured the camps.
Rob Perks, curator of oral history at the archive, said: “These oral testimonies personalise the enormity of the Holocaust in a very direct and human way, emphasising the variety and complexity of individual experience.
