For indexing 307 Greek testimonies of Holocaust survivors and eyewitnesses contained in the Institute’s archive and for making the testimonies accessible to Greek-speaking educators, students, scholars and the public. The indexing, a method developed by historians, linguists, geographers and researchers at the Foundation, involves digital cataloguing of the testimonies in a keyword index of over 50,000 terms that allows users to find particular information and its location in a testimony.
The USC Shoah Foundation Institute for Visual History and Education was established by Steven Spielberg in 1994, to record the testimonies of survivors and other eyewitnesses of the Holocaust on videotape. Today the Institute reaches educators, students, researchers, and scholars on every continent, and supports efforts to collect testimony from the survivors and witnesses of genocides to educate people about the suffering caused by prejudice, intolerance and bigotry.
