Passing of Elie Wiesel

Elie Wiesel at Auschwitz-Birkenau (1990)

Forever will I see the children who no longer have the strength to cry. Forever will I see the elderly who no longer have the strength to help them. Forever will I see the mothers and the fathers, the grandfathers and grandmothers, the little school children…their teachers…the righteous and the pious…. From where do we take the tears to cry over them? Who has the strength to cry for them?

—Elie Wiesel, 1990 March of the Living

USC Shoah Foundation: Watch Testimony Clips in New Book from the March of the Living

A smartphone app makes it possible to view testimony clips from the Visual History Archive that are linked to the new book Witness: Passing the Torch of Holocaust Memory to New Generations.

Witness is inspired by the United Nations’ touring photography exhibit “When You Listen to a Witness, You Become a Witness,” which was organized by the March of the Living. The book includes photographs, firsthand accounts of survivors and reflections from young people as they experience the March of the Living and are impacted by the survivors’ stories.

Readers can download the free smartphone or tablet app Digimarc Discover and scan specially marked photos throughout the book. Scanning these photos unlocks digital content, including clips from the Visual History Archive, which readers can watch on their device.

Witness was compiled by Eli Rubenstein, national director of March of the Living Canada and leader at a Toronto synagogue founded by Holocaust survivors.
