Project Save’s Oral History Collection
From 1978 to 2022, Project Save founder Ruth Thomasian recorded an extensive collection of Oral Histories. Thomasian traveled the United States gathering the testimonies of +700 photo donors and their direct family members, many of whom were Armenian Genocide survivors. These touching interviews provide crucial information about the donors’ photographs, like specific dates, locations, subjects’ names, and other contextual information.
Project Save is actively working on digitizing and transcribing these interviews so they are accessible to the public.
