Oral History Project

Oral History Project

The mission of the ASJM Oral History Project is to record, transcribe and preserve personal narratives from the American Soviet Jewry Movement. Through interviews with participants in the effort, the project aims to capture this period of American Jewish history and its great impact on individuals, politics and the movement of Jews to escape oppression in the Former Soviet Union for lives of their choosing in the US, Israel and elsewhere.

The archived interviews resulting from the Oral History Project are collected in the American Soviet Jewry Movement Oral Histories Collection, I-548 (Click here for the Finding Aid.) The collection is accessible at the Lillian Goldman Reading Room.
