Survivor Testimonies on German-Jewish ‘Mixed Marriages’
Historiography, Potentials and Challenges
Keywords:mixed marriages, Fortunoff Archive, video testimonies
The history of ‘mixed marriages’ was for the longest time a rather neglected topic in Holocaust studies, but it has gained considerable attention since the early 1990s. This attention thus coincided with the heyday of large oral history projects. This article looks back at the role and place of oral history and survivor testimonies in the historiography of ‘mixed marriages’ and explores the potential for future research, by examining the body of such testimonies (both by the parent and the children generation) in the Fortunoff Video Archive for Holocaust Testimonies.
