Aug. 21, 2017
Survivors of some of the last half-century’s worst atrocities now have their stories and firsthand experiences preserved for future generations through a special Baylor Institute for Oral History (IOH) project, the Survivors of Genocide project, commissioned and funded by the Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission. “When we hear about genocide, we see numbers, often graphic numbers, and hear reports of atrocities,” said Stephen Sloan, Ph.D., B.B.A. ’90, M.A. ’98, Baylor IOH director and assistant professor of history. “What can be lost is the human experience.
