As of December 2011, the Vienna Wiesenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies (VWI) has been entrusted with a digital copy of the London oral history video project Refugee Voices. The project was initiated in 2003 by the Association of Jewish Refugees (AJR) in Great Britain, a charity established by Jewish refugees in 1941 which is dedicated to providing social and financial support to Jewish victims of the Nazi regime living in Great Britain. The project team, led by Anthony Greenville and Bea Lewkowicz, conducted altogether 150 video interviews with Jewish emigrants, former slave labourers and Holocaust survivors now living in Britain. The English language interviews, comprising 450 hours of filmed material, were professionally prepared by the AJR in order to make them accessible to researchers and interested parties from different disciplines as sources for their research projects. All interviews have been transcribed and issued with time codes. An extensive databank is part of the material; it contains an index of the interviews including important informations on the interviewee's life stories. Furthermore, the conversations, which can be searched by key words, are complemented by materials on the interviewees' life stories, such as documents and photographs.
