Nanjing Massacre Of 1937: Preserving Survivors' Testimonies

As the Nanjing testimonies are integrated into the Visual History Archive, they will be made available as a distinct collection within the archive alongside collections of eyewitnesses to other genocides that the Institute has collected from Armenia, Cambodia and Rwanda. The Institute has long identified the need to preserve memories of other genocides as each collection provides context for the others, enabling scholars to study eyewitness experiences across time, locations, cultures, and socio-political circumstances.

About the USC Shoah Foundation USC Shoah Foundation – The Institute for Visual History and Education ( is dedicated to making audio-visual interviews with survivors and other witnesses of the Holocaust and other genocides, a compelling voice for education and action. The Institute's current collection of nearly 52,00 eyewitness testimonies contained within its Visual History Archive preserves history as told by the people who lived it and lived through it. Housed at the University of Southern California within the Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, the Institute works with partners around the world to advance scholarship and research, to provide resources and online tools for educators, and to disseminate the testimonies for educational purposes.

About the Nanjing Massacre Memorial Hall The Memorial Hall of the Victims in Nanjing Massacre by Japanese Invaders was built in 1985 with funding by the Nanjing municipal government. It is a world-renowned national museum and the first WWII history museum in Mainland China.
