Narrative Interviews with 334 Holocaust Survivors

OSA acquired a collection of narrative interviews with 334 Holocaust survivors.

The interviews were carried out within the framework of the "European Spirit and Totalitarianism" sub-project by the Institute of Philosophy of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Debrecen and by Vulgo Research Group at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences between 2004 and 2010. The project was sponsored by the NKFP (The National Cultural Development Programs) and headed by sociologist and psychologist Júlia Vajda, at whose suggestion a copy of the research material was deposited with OSA. The interviews were recorded and some of the audio recordings have already been transcribed. Depending on the agreements with the interviewees, some of the interviews are available for research purposes while the rest are restricted or available only with permission.
