Testimony to Tolerance Initiative - Central Arkansas Library System
At the center of the Initiative is the Little Rock Visual History Collection, a collection of 26 of the USC Shoah Foundation Institute's video testimonies of Holocaust survivors and other witnesses — including four interviews that were conducted in Arkansas.

The testimonies can be checked out at any of the twelve branches that make up the Central Arkansas Library System.
