USC Shoah Foundation Visual History Archive: Central African Republic Conflict

Established in 1994 to preserve the audio-visual histories of survivors and other witnesses of the Holocaust, the USC Shoah Foundation maintains one of the largest video digital libraries in the world: the Visual History Archive (VHA).

Central African Republic Conflict

In July 2017, the USC Shoah Foundation added to the VHA four testimonies from witnesses of the ongoing Central African Republic conflict. Extreme sectarian violence between the pro-Muslim coalition Seleka and the pro-Christian movement Anti-Balaka erupted in 2012 and escalated after Michel Djotodia seized power from former president François Bozizé in March 2013. The interviews were recorded by the USC Shoah Foundation in Kigali, Rwanda, in January 2016. Three of these interviews are in French and one is in English.
