Eyewitness: The Survivor's Voice

The JHC Eyewitness Project commenced in 2002 aiming to preserve the essence of the fifteen- minute talks given by survivor-guides to students, because we recognised that the survivors’ personal stories enabled students to engage with history and events that were otherwise alien to them and difficult to understand.

We also wanted to ensure that their voices live on in the museum for years to come.

Forty ‘Eyewitness’ recordings were produced, each of approximately fifteen minutes’ duration.

Below are a number of these recordings for you to view.  Please click on the images of each survivor to hear their story in their own words.
