Visual History Archive Presentation

All of Clemson’s campus and guests are welcome to stop by the Cooper Library Byrnes Room on Monday, January 27th from 4 to 5 pm to hear Claudia Wiedeman, of the University of Southern California, introduce the Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive (SFVHA) http://sfi.usc.edu/vha. During this presentation, Claudia will give an overview of SFVHA and describe ways you may use the SFVHA for your own research.

The SFVHA allows you to search through and view more than 55,000 video testimonies of survivors and witnesses of genocide in over 30 countries and in dozens of foreign languages. Nine main global genocidal events are featured: the Holocaust, the Armenian Genocide during World War I, the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda, the 1937 Nanjing Massacre in China, the Guatemalan Genocide of the early 1980s, the Cambodian Genocide of the 1970s, the ongoing South Sudan Civil War, the Central Africa Republic conflict of 2012, and anti-Rohingya Mass Violence of 2017.
