To gather audio and video testimonies from Holocaust refugees about their experiences before and after they came to Scotland;
To make these testimonies available & freely accessible on the World Wide Web.;
To educate current and future generations about the resilience of these refugees;
To use innovative teaching and learning approaches
This project would not have been possible without the vital contributions from the survivors of Nazi anti-Semitism and political persecution. They gave their testimonies generously despite describing experiences that were painful for them to recall.
This project is a true reflection of community for it has involved many groups and individuals.
