Transcending Trauma Project Archives Added to the Collection at Yad Vashem in Jerusalum


We’re honored that the archives (newly digitized) of our Transcending Trauma Project have been added to the collection at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, Israel. Here are some pictures from this exciting event. Pictured here is Nancy Isserman, Co-Director, Transcending Trauma Project, delivering the archives in person.

Since 1991, the Transcending Trauma Project, as part of Council for Relationships, has conducted 305 in-depth life histories with 98 Holocaust survivors, and their children and grandchildren to better understand coping and adaptation after extreme trauma. The project has produced 1,200 hours of interviews which are permanently preserved as digital files. The Phil Wachs and Juliet Spitzer Archive of the Transcending Trauma Project is housed at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum and is available onsite to the public.
