This collection was donated by Norman Carlson of the Wallenberg Committee and George Browder of the Goldbloom Memorial Fund Committee. This collection comprises recorded oral histories from two living history day events focused on interviewing Holocaust survivors. This collection comprises oral history recordings on broadcast video cassette, VHS cassette, and audio cassette. All of which has been digitized as MP4 files. This collection is arranged into two major series, Series A. Interview Recordings and Series B. Interview Transcripts. Both of these series are in separate arrangements, the first level being the committee that created the recordings and the sub series level by last name of interviewee in alphabetical order.
