Term: Holocaust Survivors in Wisconsin
Historians estimate that more than 1,000 survivors of the Nazi Holocaust eventually settled in Wisconsin. Between 1974 and 1981, Wisconsin Historical Society archivists interviewed 22 survivors. The complete audio recordings and typed transcripts of those interviews are available online (about 160 hours of audio and 3,400 pages of text). Hear brief excerpts or listen to entire 10-hour interviews. Find conversations on specific topics, events, people, or places. Read complete transcripts of any interview. View hundreds of pictures. Download any of it to your own computer or mp3 player for free at the Wisconsin Survivors of the Holocaust online collection.
Any document in the collection may be printed or downloaded at no cost for nonprofit educational use by teachers, students and researchers. Nothing may be reproduced in any format for commercial purposes without prior permission. View images donated by Holocaust survivors living in Wisconsin at Wisconsin Historic Images. Purchase the book, Remembering the Holocaust, that was based on the interviews.
