New Dimensions in Testimony℠

Primary tabs

(Sept. 6-Sept. 27) — Revolutionizing the very concept and definition of oral history, "New Dimensions in Testimony℠" enables people — now and far into the future — to have lifelike conversations with Holocaust survivors.

Specialized recording and display technologies and next-generation natural language processing allow viewers to ask questions about survivors’ life experiences and hear responses in real-time, lifelike conversation.

As part of its 20th-anniversary commemoration, the Museum is proud to pilot this interactive testimony installation — the first of its kind in the greater New York area — and to present the world premiere of the testimony of Eva Schloss and the New York premiere of the testimony of Pinchas Gutter. Eva Schloss, the stepsister of Anne Frank, is a survivor of Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp who now lives in London, England. Pinchas Gutter is a survivor of six German Nazi concentration camps who now lives in Toronto, Canada.

New Dimensions in Technology℠ is created by USC Shoah Foundation and USC Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT), in partnership with concept developer Conscience Display.
