Primary sources

Fortunoff Video Archive of Holocaust Testimonies
The archive’s collection consists of over 4,400 testimonies that record the experiences of over 4,000 survivors, witnesses, bystanders and liberators of the Holocaust.

Boston College is one of the access sites for the significant collection of Holocaust testimonies at Yale’s Fortunoff Video Archive. Because of the nature of the collection, and as a protection for researchers and survivors, there’s a slightly more complicated than usual login procedure the first time you use the collection.

  1. Follow a link from a BC website or the library catalog
  2. Create an account with the archive
  3. Confirm the email address you’ve given
  4. Log into the site
  5. Do a search of the collection and request access to a testimony
  6. Fill out the request form
  7. Wait for an approval email, usually done in a few minutes

Once you’ve completed the process once you’ll have access to the whole collection by just logging in.
