Inspired by recent donations to the Isser and Rae Price Library of Judaica, Testimony showcases primary sources that bear undeniable witness to the fact of the Holocaust. Featuring the last letters from victims of the Nazi terror before they were murdered, the papers and autobiography of a concentration camp survivor, photographic evidence of the camps taken by the U.S. Signal Corps in 1945, newspapers published during the Second World War, memoirs produced by survivors and dispersed communities in the decades following, as well as unique responses to the Holocaust manifested in later works of art. Testimony documents the impact of the Holocaust on the victims and survivors, and it gives voice to the immense aftershock felt by subsequent generations.
