United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

Partner

A living memorial to the Holocaust, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) inspires citizens and leaders worldwide to confront hatred, prevent genocide, and promote human dignity. The Museum strives to broaden public understanding of the history of the Holocaust and serves as the country’s memorial to the millions of people murdered by the Nazi regime and its allies and collaborators. It is America’s national institution for the documentation, study, interpretation and education of Holocaust history.
The Museum’s National Institute for Holocaust Documentation houses an unparalleled repository of Holocaust evidence that documents the fate of victims, survivors, rescuers, liberators, and others. Its unique collections, especially its Film and Video Archive, the Oral History collection as well as its Photo Archives are eminently important as a starting point for archival research.
The Museum has a long-standing partnership with the Austrian Film Museum and the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Digital History, leading to joint projects such as “Ephemeral Films: National Socialism in Austria” (2011–2016), and the film retrospective “Bilder der Befreiung. Liberation Footage – Atrocity Pictures” (May 2015) in Vienna.

Role in the Project

With its vast collections, its unparalleled expertise in many fields of curation and education, its outstanding Film and Video Archive, and the dedication of its staff, the Museum is a key partner of the project on many levels.
