What is New Dimensions in Testimony?
New Dimensions in Testimony is a collection of interactive video testimonies from the USC Shoah Foundation, enabling people to engage with Holocaust survivors and other witnesses to genocide, by asking questions and conversing. Through the use of artificial intelligence, audiences will be able to continue to interact with survivors for decades to come.
The survivors were interviewed surrounded by cameras arranged to capture a three-dimensional recording of them telling their story in a new way, by answering questions that people are most likely to ask. (USC Shoah Foundation)
The future of Holocaust Education
Years from now, long after the last survivor has left us, New Dimensions in Testimony will be able to provide a valuable opportunity to engage with a survivor and ask them questions directly, encouraging them, each in their own way, to reflect on the deep and meaningful consequences of their experiences.
By providing valuable points of view from someone who was there, students can better understand the human story behind the acts of human cruelty and understand the impact it had on real people in a manner that is responsive and engaging, making history more relevant to their lives.
