Cornell Jewish Studies aims to be a model of engaged discussion and scholarship in the humanities. It offers the Cornell community a connecting thread to the lives of ancestors and neighbors, both now and long ago, down the block and far away, recorded in text, practice, art, and material culture.
USC Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive
For over twenty years, USC Shoah Foundation has given voice to the witnesses of genocide for education and action. The Visual History Archive was established to house testimonies of genocide survivors who have given a complete personal history of life before, during and after their first-hand experience with genocide. It is one of the largest digital collections of its kind in the world, fully searchable via indexed keywords, and hyperlinked to the minute. In the Fall of 2015, Cornell University gained access to this powerful resource with the support of Robert J. Katz '69, Cornell trustee emeritus and former board chair of the USC Shoah Foundation, and Jonathan Aaron Boyarin, Hendrix Director of Jewish Studies, Diann G. and Thomas A. Mann Professor of Modern Jewish Studies and professor of anthropology.
