The Hub is currently featuring a video interview with Socheata Poeuv, a visiting fellow at the Yale University Genocide Studies Program.  Poeuv is the founder and director of Khmer Legacies, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the history of the Cambodian genocide by recording video testimonials of its survivors. In this interview (conducted by Teague Schneiter), Poeuv reflects on how archives – and specifically Khmer Legacies’ video archives – help protect human rights by redefining the way we record, preserve, and ultimately understand genocide and mass atrocities. She discusses some of the particularities of video testimonies, as well as the ethical concerns inherent to the online distribution of video content. This video is part of our ongoing spotlight on The Role of Archives in Human Rights.
