USC Shoah Foundation – The Institute for Visual History and Education is dedicated to overcoming prejudice, intolerance, and hatred – and the suffering they cause – through the educational use of the Institute’s testimonies. The Institute currently has over 54,000 testimonies recorded in 40 languages in 63 countries that allow us to see the faces and hear the voices of those who witnessed history. The first of the Armenian testimonies were integrated into the Visual History Archive in April 2015, coinciding with the 100-year anniversary of the onset of those atrocities. For this collection, USC Shoah Foundation partnered with the late Dr. J. Michael Hagopian, who filmed all the interviews. The partnership includes Hagopian’s wife Antoinette and the Armenian Film Foundation.

She will present USC Shoah Foundation’s resources pertaining to Armenian Genocide education available on the educational website of IWitness, and she will also discuss the Education Department’s goals for the 2017-2018 school years.
