For many years, interviewers have been collecting the stories of Holocaust survivors, liberators, and witnesses who found their way to St. Louis after WWII.
Now, for the first time, the Holocaust Museum & Learning Center has gathered 144 of these oral histories into a searchable website, securing their stories for all time.
“There are still and always will be deniers. Saving these interviews allows these precious voices and their memories to bear witness to cruelties impossible to believe. These tapes will be preserved so that students, scholars, and other interested individuals can listen, learn, research, write about, and teach others about the horror of the Holocaust. These voices are the heart and soul of all our efforts.”
-Vida “Sister” Prince, Oral Histories Project Chairman
