Shoah Visual History Collection
The Shoah Foundation was established in 1994 by Steven Spielberg after he directed “Schindler's List.” At the time, the foundation was called Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation. The organization dedicates itself to making and storing audio-visual interviews of survivors of the Holocaust and other genocides from around the world in order to educate the public.
The Foundation videotaped more than 51,000 testimonies, and Charleston County Public Library is honored to offer on-site access to 28 of those videos from survivors and witnesses who gave testimony in South Carolina between the years of 1994-1998. This collection comprises the first regional collection of Shoah Foundation testimonies available for viewing at a public library in the United States, and it is housed on the second floor of the Main Library.
To view the materials on-site, please visit the Reference Desk on the second floor, where a librarian will assist you in selecting a video based on your interests and needs. You'll need to provide your Charleston County Public Library card, a driver's license or a school identification card to view the materials. Your I.D. will be retained at the Reference Desk while you view the videos and returned once all tapes have been received. Parents, please use judgement when viewing this collection with children.
