Oral History Indexing Project

Oral History Indexing
March 8, 2016–

Our oral history indexing project is well underway. The goal of the project is to make all the videos in our oral history collection searchable and enable users to easily find testimony related to any topic. Once complete you will be able to find and go directly to relevant timestamps of the videos by clicking on keywords such as “immigration,” “refugee,” and “Kristallnacht.”

Werner Michel was part of the One Thousand Children program, which brought over 1,400 children from Nazi occupied regions to the United States. He is pictured here boarding the SS New York in Hamburg, Germany on his way to the United States.
