First interactive testimony on the experience of exile enters public beta test phase

Beginning in mid-April 2022, the German National Library’s German Exile Archive 1933-1945 and the USC Shoah Foundation – The Institute for Visual History and Education will be inviting visitors to take part in beta testing for Kurt S. Maier’s testimony at the German National Library in Frankfurt am Main. Kurt S. Maier was born in Kippenheim in 1930 and fled to the USA with his parents as an 11-year-old boy.
