The Legacy Library is a unique collection of documentaries of Holocaust Survivors, Liberators, and Resistors in the Philadelphia area. This collection is an educational resource for teachers, students, historians, and the world. With this continued sharing of knowledge, we will never forget the contributions of these Holocaust eyewitnesses. Each person is a primary source to the events of the Holocaust and World War II. Listen to their stories directly from them, and their own words as they remember it. Each story adds personal insight and humanity to the gravity of what truly happened.
Each documentary is on average 30-60 minutes and includes video timestamps to easily navigate through their testimony. One page biographies are also included and access is provided to the Yaakov Riz Resource Center for additional resources for teaching and learning.
We are aware of the technical difficulties that some videos are producing. We are working to resolve the issues as soon as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience.
