Shandler’s author statement introduces a Scalar project titled “Holocaust Survivors on Schindler’s List; or, Reading a Digital Archive against the Grain.” Examining references to the 1993 film Schindler’s List in videotaped interviews with Holocaust survivors at the USC Shoah Foundation’s Visual History Archive, the project’s “against-the-grain” reading demonstrates how mediation inheres in the processes of creating, archiving, and accessing these works of remembrance and, moreover, of remembering itself. “Holocaust Survivors on Schindler’s List” is available on the Scalar platform at http://dx.doi.org/10.1215/00029831-2370212.
