Wolf Gruner, director of the USC Shoah Foundation Center for Advanced Genocide Research, spoke at Cornell March 17, 2016, drawing on previously unused local archival sources from various cities, as well as video testimonies, to demonstrate that German Jews performed many individual acts of defiance and protest against Nazi persecution starting in 1933 and well into the war.

The talk, sponsored by Cornell Jewish Studies and the Cornell University Library, is part of a series of events designed to highlight new access, through Cornell Library, to the USC Shoah Foundation’s Visual History Archive. This archive is a collection of 53,000 video testimonies by survivors of the Nazi genocide, as well as the Rwandan genocide, the Nanjing massacre and the Armenian genocide.
