Liat Benhabib is the Director of the Visual Center of Yad Vashem. Under the auspices of the Yad Vashem Library, the main goal of the department is to make its collection of films about the Holocaust as comprehensive as possible.
“The Visual Center is engaged not only in collecting additional films and solving related copyright issues, but also in developing its database of detailed information about all films produced about the Holocaust, as well as survivor testimonies. Thousands of films have been catalogued in the Visual Center’s database, and more than half of these titles are currently available for viewing on the premises. All of the 52,000 survivor testimonies recorded by the USC Shoah Foundation Institute are also available for viewing, as well as approximately 10,000 Yad Vashem survivor testimonies.”
