Destination unknown( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Destination Unknown blends intimate testimony with immersive archive to bring the stories of twelve Holocaust survivors to the screen. The film creates a seamless mosaic of first-hand accounts, rare archive from the time, and family Super 8 footage from after the war. The survivors share their memories, some for the first time, some for the last, bringing their experiences to a new generation. They endured the death camps. They hid in remote farms. They fought as partisans in Polish forests. But when the war ended, those survivors' struggles were only just beginning. With the only interview ever recorded of Mietek Pemper, the stenographer for the Kraków-Płaszów concentration camp Commandant - Amon Göth and advisor to Oskar Schindler, who previously refused to talk on film, among other incredible personal stories, Destination Unknown paints a uniquely intimate portrait of survival, revealing the pain that has never faded, but cannot crush the human spirit. Their stories do not end with liberation. We see how they had to survive the chaos that came afterwards, and their attempts to build new lives" --Container

Holocaust - was damals geschah by Angela Gluck Wood( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in German and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 7 Kapiteln, angefangen mit einem historischen Überblick zur Entstehung des Judentums bis zu den Nachwirkungen der Verfolgung, befasst sich die Autorin mit allen Bereichen des Holocausts. Das Besondere dieses Buches ist jedoch nicht die sorgsame Zusammenstellung der Fakten und ihre Illustrierung durch vorzügliches Bildmaterial, sondern die Einbindung von Zeitzeugen. Eine beiliegende DVD ermöglicht es, ihre Berichte zu sehen und zu hören und damit ihr Erleben intensiver, als es das geschriebene Wort oder ein Bild vermag, nachzuempfinden. Ein Zugang zu dem "Menschheitsverbrechen" Holocaust, der in dieser Weise zukünftig nicht mehr möglich sein wird. Unter der Überschrift "Stimmen" sind in jedem der 7 Kapitel ebenfalls Erfahrungsberichte eingeblendet, etwa über das Leben im Schtetl oder im Durchgangslager, wobei Fotos der Befragten die Anonymität des Leids durchbrechen. Dem Buch liegen die Aufzeichnungen des Instituts der Shoah-Stiftung für visuelle Geschichte und Bildung zugrunde. Zum Thema vgl. zuletzt "Massel" (Hanser, BA 4/07). Beeindruckend! Breit empfohlen, auch für die Schule

Inspired by his experience making Schindler's List, Steven Spielberg established the Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation in 1994 to gather video testimonies from survivors and other witnesses of the Holocaust ... The goal of the MALACH project was to develop methods for improved access to large multitnational spoken archives; the focus was advancing the state of the art of automatic speech recognition (ASR) and information retrieval. The characteristics of the USC-SFI collection -- unconstrained, natural speech filled with disfluencies, heavy accents, age-related coarticulations, un-cued speaker and language switching and emotional speech -- were considered well-suited for that task."--LDC online catalogue
