iWitness hosts 1000+ videos of Holocaust survivors and witnesses

I just learned about iWitness from Benjamin Nason (@Ratkacher). (http://iwitness.usc.edu/SFI)

IWitness is an online application for educators and students, giving them access to watch, search, and learn from over 1,000 video testimonies of survivors and other witnesses of the Holocaust. IWitness is unique by bringing educators and their students (ages 13-18) together at the intersection of Holocaust education and the development of critical multi-literacies for the 21st century. The 1000+ video testimonies available within the IWitness application are part of an archive of nearly 52,000 testimonies of Holocaust survivors and other witnesses maintained by the University of Southern California’s Shoah Foundation Institute, established in 1994 by Steven Spielberg.
