annefrankHistory teaches us valuable things about ourselves and others. It helps us look at things from other perspectives, it can help us shape our future, rectify injustices, understand and rid ourselves of prejudices, and celebrate differences. History is a valuable learning tool and when you can make history come alive, it is even more valuable and poignant. The Holocaust Memorial Center of Michigan is designed to bring history alive and allow us to reflect on the value of the human life and humanity in general.

Oral History Project

Invaluable historical information has been recorded via over 700 audio and video interviews of Holocaust survivors, veterans of the European Theatre of War, witnesses, liberators, and rescuers from the early 1980s on.  The oral history collection includes:

  • Personal narratives of the rise of the anti-Jewish campaign in Austria, Germany, and other countries that fell under German rule
  • Accounts of individuals and families who were able to escape
  • Interviewee names, birth places, and identification

A Note from the Department of Oral History

“As time grows short for Holocaust survivors, the necessity to record their accounts of this period of history is imperative…The HMC therefore asks that anyone who lived through this period and witnessed the Holocaust to please contact the museum to record your story.”  For more information visit: http://www.holocaustcenter.org/page.aspx?pid=378.
