Volu­metric Records of Holo­caust Survivors

77 years ago today, the Aus­schwitz-Bir­ken­au con­cen­tra­ti­on camp was libe­ra­ted by the Red Army. Today we com­me­mo­ra­te the mil­li­ons of vic­tims who were cruel­ly mur­de­red by the Nazis. We all bear respon­si­bi­li­ty for ensu­ring that anti-Semi­tism and racism have no place in our society.

In order to docu­ment the tes­ti­mo­nies of Holo­caust sur­vi­vors and wit­nesses and to pre­ser­ve them in the hig­hest pos­si­ble qua­li­ty for future gene­ra­ti­ons, insti­tu­ti­ons in Pots­dam such as the UFA GmbH and Film­uni­ver­si­tät Babels­berg KON­RAD WOLF coope­ra­ted with the Volu­cap GmbH in Pots­dam Babels­berg to do volu­metric recor­dings of sur­vi­vors. In inter­views, eye­wit­nesses share their expe­ri­en­ces and memo­ries asso­cia­ted with the Holo­caust. The mate­ri­al is made available to future gene­ra­ti­ons through an archi­ve and is used for edu­ca­tio­nal and awa­re­ness-rai­sing purposes.

We find such pro­jects very important and the­r­e­fo­re would like to share them with you:
