Malach Centre for Visual History

Malach Centre for Visual History at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University in Prague provides local access to the extensive digital archives of the USC Shoah Foundation - the Institute for Visual history and Education, the Refugee Voices archive of the Association of Jewish Refugees, and the testimony collection of the Museum of Romani Culture in Brno.

The Visual History Archive of USC Shoah Foundation contains over 50 000 witness testimonies covering the history of entire 20th century. Filmed interviews are fully accessible through an on-line interface in Malach CVH. Users can search for and view testimonies of interest by using more than 55 000 keywords or a database of 1.1 million names. The testimonies available in Malach Centre were recorded in 56 countries and in 32 languages. The Refugee Voices archive complements this collection with additional 150 interviews, while the testimonies of the Museum of Romani Culture in Brno provide the much needed record of genocide and persecution of the Roma (in Czech and Slovak language). For further details about the archives please see the Malach Centre website at
