It includes interviews, transcripts, articles, and films of Holocaust survivors, and seeks to preserve and foster the teaching, scholarship, and research of the experiences of the deaf and hard of hearing in the Holocaust. The website is the result of several years of gathering materials about Deaf people's experiences related to World War II for Deaf Studies courses taught at NTID/RIT.
