State of From Generation To... Interview Project
19. 2. 2020 Overview news
The Jewish Museum in Prague and Mr. Robert B. Fried agreed to continue their cooperation on the Interview Project "From Generation To..." in 2020.
The goal of this project is to collect personal accounts of the Shoah survivors from former Czechoslovakia. Mr. Fried´s ongoing support makes it possible to increase the number of interviews that constitute a valuable testimony of this dark period in history. Thanks to Mr Fried’s generous 2018 donation we were able to record and process 6 interviews (in the United States, New Zealand and Israel).
In 2019 our work continued with another 55 recorded testimonies, out of which 33 were with narrators from the Czech Republic, 17 from Israel, 3 from the USA and 1 from the UK and from Australia, respectively. Our project in Australia has of late been temporarily suspended due to difficulties incurred as a result of the current climate situation. We hope the situation will improve soon and we will be able to continue to interview first generation witnesses in Sydney and Melbourne.
In 2020 we would like to continue with the recording of Shoah survivors in the all before mentioned territories and record close to the same number of testimonies as in 2019.
