Virtual Programs

The Iowa Jewish Historical Society offers a variety of virtual programs for free.  These programs cover such diverse topics as the testimonies of Holocaust survivors and oral histories from Iowans who helped liberate the concentration camps.

As you’re listening to these programs, please be aware that many of the testimonies and oral histories were recorded nearly 40 years ago with a single microphone shared by the interviewer and interviewee.  We enhanced and balanced the sound but, at times, you may still need to listen closely.  It is worth the effort to hear these stories in the voice and words of the people who lived them.
