Use & Licensing

Users wishing to publish or license content from the VHEC's archives, museum and Holocaust testimony collections should assess the content's copyright status. Users should cite the VHEC as the source with an appropriate credit line and, if a particular material is under copyright, must clear permission with the copyright holder, typically the creator or heir to the creator's estate, and comply with any restrictions imposed by the donor at the time of donation. Permission to examine physical records, born-digital materials, printed copies or digitized items is not an authorization to publish.
