The Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy and the Institute of Politics at Harvard Kennedy School, along with USC Shoah Foundation, invite you to join Harvard President Lawrence S. Bacow and University of Southern California President Carol Folt for an event celebrating Harvard University’s subscription to USC Shoah Foundation’s Visual History Archive, making the archive available to the Harvard community. Harvard University affiliates can access the subscription through this Harvard Library database record.
