USC Shoah Foundation integrates Rwandan genocide testimonies secured by Aegis .

Aegis’ American partner the USC Shoah Foundation – The Institute for Visual History and Education – has added a collection of testimonies of survivors and rescuers from the 1994 Rwandan Tutsi genocide to its Visual History Archive. Holding over 52,000 filmed Holocaust survivor testimonies, this marks its first integration of testimonies outside the Holocaust. The 65 audiovisual interviews in this new collection mark the beginning of the Rwanda Archive and Education Programme, the Institute’s landmark initiative in partnership with the Aegis Trust at the Kigali Genocide Memorial (KGM). The programme aspires to record and preserve approximately 500 Rwandan testimonies as an educational resource for the entire world, for all time.
