The Jewish Museum Hohenems has carried out various oral history projects that have generated audio and video documents dealing with the Jewish history of Hohenems and Vorarlberg. These interviews include topics such as Jewish life in Hohenems, Vorarlberg, and Tyrol, stories of escape, the postwar period, family memories, and the experiences of the descendants as well as accounts of ways of dealing with historical heritage. Furthermore, the museum collects audio and video documents concerning Jewish history in Vorarlberg and Tyrol, Liechtenstein and Eastern Switzerland. Among them are the relevant holdings of the “Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation” concerning the topics of escape and DPs in Vorarlberg.
Audio and video documents can be viewed and listened to at the museum by prior appointment. Some are permanently available in our media space.
