Yes. The AU library has the Shoah Foundation Institute Visual History Archive of streaming video testimonials from survivors of genocides, including the Holocaust, the Armenian and Rwandan genocides, the Nanjing Massacre, and other atrocities.

Visitors must come to the AU campus to use the database. They may use their own laptops or any library computer. Visitors should bring their own headphones or ear buds and be prepared to take notes.  The interviews cannot be downloaded for off-site use.

Upon arrival at the library, visitors should present their government-issued photo ID (a driver's license, passport, etc.) to the Circulation Desk staff to receive a temporary log in.  

To access the database, go to the library's homepage under RESEARCH RESOURCES > Search Databases > S > Shoah Foundation.

Both members of the AU community and visitors will be prompted to create a free account to use the database.
