Oral History Collection
Minnesota Liberators of Concentration Camps Oral History Project
These interviews were conducted in the 1980s for the Holocaust Oral History Taping Project of the Jewish Community Relations Council, Anti-Defamation League of Minnesota and the Dakotas. Some narrators belonged to the first Allied forces to reach concentration camps at the end of World War II; others saw the camps within days of their liberation. Each interview in this collection includes biographical information about the narrator and a description of subjects discussed. The Jewish Community Relations Council donated the recordings and transcripts to the Minnesota Historical Society in 1996.
