“A Record of Memory” – a New Digital Archive
The events which are told here do not die. By storing them on the Internet, they are able to reach us anywhere, anytime. This is why the “A Record of Memory” archive was created.
– the “Children of the Holocaust” Association in Poland
The digital archive, “A Record of Memory”, contains the memories of the “Children of the Holocaust” – people who were not more than thirteen-years-old or who were born during the period of occupation. Its idea is to collect and share the memories and memorabilia of a wide range of people in Poland and abroad.
The project is named in honour of the first Chairman of the “Children of the Holocaust” Association in Poland, Prof. Jakub Gutenbaum who, from 1991, through publishing the biographies of people who joined the Association, created a five-volume series of memories entitled “The Children of the Holocaust Speak ...”.
"A Record of Memory" builds upon the Association's earlier projects – “My Jewish Parents, My Polish Parents” (2015), meetings (2015–2019), the website: moirodzice.org.pl (2015), the study “We Could Not Understand Why” (2017) as well as the published memoirs “Children of the Holocaust” (2014–2019).
