The University of Southern California Shoah Foundation would like to invite you to participate in a survey on the use of audiovisual testimony in research and teaching, especially on the subject of genocide. Your participation will help us enormously in our education and research efforts that aim to contribute to the prevention of genocide.
The survey takes 10 minutes or less, and can be completed on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. Responses will be completely anonymous and used only in the aggregate for statistical purposes. Results will be shared publicly.
