Today BUIOH is proud to announce the launch of our newest project website, "Survivors of Genocide." From May 2015 through October 2016, the Institute conducted fourteen oral histories with survivors of the genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda/Burundi, Bosnia, and Darfur. This work was contracted through a grant from the Texas Holocaust and Genocide Commission in order for survivors who now live in Texas to tell their stories of escaping the horrors of their homelands and finding a new life in the United States.
All produced materials relating to the Survivors of Genocide project are available online through this project website and our content management system, ContentDM. On the genocide pages, for each interviewee you can view a short "trailer" video of their testimony. Also included are links to their database entries and the OHMS portal where users can easily explore the full interview.
