About

The Baltic Video Archive of Stanford Libraries currently consists of four oral history collections featured in this exhibit. Producing and/or digitizing these collections, with the aim of making them more accessible to international scholarship, has been an ongoing effort since 2013. It is our goal to strengthen the existing collections by supplementing them with newly recorded interviews, providing edited and subtitled clips, and acquiring new collections pertaining to the history and memory of the Baltic states.

Stanford Libraries wishes to thank the Estonian Memory Institute, the Museum of the Occupation of Latvia, the Museum of Occupations in Tallinn, Estonia, and Hypnosis Communications for producing these digital video collections in collaboration with Stanford, and for making it possible for these important testimonies of the history, memory, and identity of the Baltic countries to be made accessible to the wider audiences.
