Publication | Library Call Number: CT1919.P38 L484 2013
Book cover

Prof. Dov Levin was one of the first researchers who recognized the value of recording oral history as one of the primary sources for understanding the events of the twentieth century. This book includes brief summaries of 611 interviews, conducted between 1957 and 2008, that were deposited in the archive of the Oral History Division of the Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry. Many of the interviews were conducted with Lithuanian Jews, as part of Prof. Levin's important research on the Jews of the Baltic countries in the inter-war period, during the Shoa and under Soviet rule. Other interviews deal with the history of Israel and its culture. Levin's collection of oral histories includes interviews of people from different countries, different social environments and varied political views, reflecting the wide spectrum of his interests and studies.
