The Truth and Reconciliation Commission established in South Africa was an experiment in restorative justice focusing on the Apartheid period. The 84 videos that comprise this collection are news broadcasts assembled by the journalist Max Du Preez covering the history and activities of the Commission. The site includes finding aids, summaries, and full-length videos, ranging from April 1996 through March 1998. It is a fantastic, if little known, resource for teachers and researchers alike. Further information is available here.

The Shoah Foundation at the University of Southern California hosts over 100,000 hours of video testimony from survivors of the Holocaust. It is the largest digital collection of its kind in the world and an unparalleled resource for researchers, students, and teachers. Users can access a small sample of the video collection online or view the entire archive at a participating research institution. Beginning last year, the archive has expanded to include eyewitness testimony of the genocide in Rwanda. More information is available here.
