The Jewish Heritage Collection Oral Histories, archived in Special Collections at the College of Charleston’s Addlestone Library, offer an inside perspective on the lives of Jewish residents of South Carolina’s cities and small towns. The majority of interviews focus on first- and second-generation Americans of the twentieth century, and address topics such as immigration, assimilation, antisemitism, making a living, and religious life. The collection also includes interviews with survivors of the Holocaust and liberators of the camps at the end of World War II, as well as a variety of presentations and panel discussions that cover subjects relevant to the history of Jewish South Carolinians. For interviews not yet online, go to jhc.cofc.edu to see a complete list of oral histories available in Special Collections.
