USC Shoah Foundation - The Institute for Visual History and Education Board of Councilors

The mission of the USC Shoah Foundation - The Institute for Visual History and Education is to overcome prejudice, intolerance, and bigotry - and the suffering they cause - through the educational use of the Institute's visual history testimonies. On January 1, 2006, the Shoah Foundation’s repository of nearly 52,000 testimonies of survivors and other witnesses to the Holocaust was transferred to USC in perpetuity. The USC Shoah Foundation - The Institute for Visual History and Education is dedicated to research and scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. The Institute conducts global educational outreach by developing educational resources for teachers, students, and universities around the world, while making its extraordinary archive accessible for research and educational purposes.
