Text Description

During the 1950s, researchers at The Wiener Holocaust Library gathered over 1,000 accounts from eyewitnesses to Nazi persecution and genocide.

In this report Hermine Horvath, an Austrian Sinti woman, recounts her experiences of the German takeover of Austia, detailing sexual violence whilst in forced labour service, her deportation to Auschwitz and undertaking slave labour at Ravensbruck.

We recently launched a dedicated resource Testifying to the Truth to showcase this collection of testimonies, now available in English for the first time.
