About us

The international research team designed a comprehensive project targeting educators, students, the civil sector and the general public. Using video testimonies of Holocaust survivors and rescuers from the USC Shoah Foundation’s Archive, we will create digital educational materials to be hosted on the international IWitness platform, where full testimonies, curated clips and digital lessons are available. With this project we aim to make available a selection of  digital resources in Portuguese. Some of the outputs of the project will be pilot tested with Portuguese students and we will be conducting teacher training using the created materials. The researched and developed content will be published on a Portuguese microsite of the platform. We will also develop a mobile application (IWalk) that will allow users to trace the historical activity of Sousa Mendes (at Casa do Passal).
