Within the framework of the EISZ National Program, an important resource for researching the history of the 20th century is also available in the ELTE PPK Library, the Visual Historical Archive of the USC Shoah Foundation.

The USC Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive was created in 1994 at the initiative of Steven Spielberg.

The Archive contains more than 55,000 video interviews with survivors and witnesses of genocides. The interviews were recorded in 41 languages, in 62 countries.

The database contains, among other things, 1,335 Hungarian-language interviews and several thousand Hungarian-related interviews related to the Holocaust. The interviews record not only the recollections of survivors, but also the recollections of eyewitnesses, liberators, rescuers, helpers and participants in war trials. The materials of the archive are not only personal accounts of genocides, but also sources of global social history of the 20th century.

The database has also been expanded with special materials, including the memories of the Rwandan, Guatemalan and Armenian genocides and the Nanking massacre in China.

The archive is accessible from a university IP range, in remote access using VPN and ELTE's IIG ID.
