The Archive's series of edited programs -- thematically organized, single-witness, and the two programs listed below-- are available for loan to schools and community groups as DVD or VHS. These programs are based upon the Archive's collection of testimonies. They offer students personal perspectives on the events of the Holocaust, transforming history from an abstract event into a concrete experience. We are hopeful that the programs will stimulate further discussion and exploration. All loans are subject to the terms of the Archive's loan agreement. The standard handling charge for loans is $30.00. Please contact us to arrange a loan, or to discuss the appropriateness of a particular program for your classroom.
