CVH Malach – Centrum vizuální historie Konference a workshop o novém přístupu a využití video databáze Fortunoff

On May 18, I took part in a very interesting workshop organized by the Malach Centre for Visual History at the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University in Prague. This exceptional association provides local access to the extensive digital archives of the USC Shoah Foundation - the Institute for Visual history and Education (USC), the Refugee Voices archive of the Association of Jewish Refugees and the testimony collection of the Jewish Holocaust Centre in Melbourne. Nevertheless, the workshop focused on the newly incorporated Fortunoff Video Archive (FVA) that belongs to the category of long-awaited ingestion, and the path to get a licence was more than difficult. The archive represents a new source for all scholars including me, but in this short comment, I would like to critically point out to several minor drawbacks.
