    Default Holocaust Survivor’s Story Preserved in…Holograms

    This is truly amazing.


    Rapper Tupac Shakur, who died in 1996, stunned audiences at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival when he made a 3-D hologram-like appearance. Now a group is hoping to use a similar concept to preserve the stories of holocaust survivors as they age.

    Although some elderly survivors, whose average age is estimated at 79, have been leaving behind manuscripts and oral histories of their lives, others fear that once they are gone there will be no one to explain the horror they lived through or to challenge the accounts of Holocaust deniers like Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

    The Shoah Foundation and the University of Southern California’s Institute for Creative Technologies are heading this hologram project. Survivors, like Pinchus Gutter, sit in front of a green screen under stage lights for hours for several days answering upwards of 500 questions.

    Research scientists at USC are editing the responses and working with voice-recognition software so that his hologram will not only be able to tell his story but recognize questions and answer them succinctly. Being able to do that often required asking as many as 50 follow-up questions to one of the original ones, the Associated Press reported earlier this month.

    Late last week, the project posted a video on YouTube showing Gutter’s hologram likeness answering questions:



    Stephen Smith, the Shoah Foundation’s executive director, told the Associated Press after the technology was showcased at USC that he expects the holograms to be completed within five years.

    Awesome. But of course, it didn't really happen according to some.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    the Shoah Foundation has a youtube channel where you can watch the testimonials of Holocaust survivors....the foundation is supposedly the biggest digital library in the world

    but this brings the whole video testimony to an entirely new level

    wonderful way to preserve history, would like to see it applied to more areas as well

    survivor of the Bowling Green Massacre 9-3-2016 BGSU 10 OSU 77

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Revolting to see the Holocaust deniers commenting there. This is why we need time travel; so that these people can see the camps first-hand.

    wow, that is truly amazing! It must be so hard on the survivors to relive the horrors for hours on length like that, answering all those questions, but their stories must never be forgotten. God bless them.
