Oral Histories Project: Holocaust Survivors
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
The National Court Reporters Foundation (NCRF) is very pleased to announce our agreement with the U. S. Holocaust Memorial Museum (the Museum) in Washington, D. C., to have court reporters transcribe the histories of Holocaust survivors. The Museum currently has a registry of more than 200,000 records related to survivors and their families from around the world, and NCRF is honored to be able to provide assistance in transcribing them for posterity and public research.
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum was dedicated in 1993 as a living memorial to the Holocaust. The Museum inspires citizens and leaders worldwide to confront hatred, prevent genocide, and promote human dignity. Its far-reaching educational programs and global impact are made possible by generous donors.
The Museum has welcomed more than 36 million visitors, including 96 heads of state and more than ten million school-age children. Their website, US Holocaust Memorial Museum, the world’s leading online authority on the Holocaust, is available in 15 languages and, in 2013, was visited by more than 12 million people representing 226 countries and territories.
Their collection includes more than 14,000 stories, and the Museum is identifying those that are 90 minutes or less. Certified court reporters will receive 0.25 PDC for each transcription, up to a maximum of 1.0 PDC in their certification cycle.
