In a world overwhelmed by social media and false news, conspiracy theories and misleading claims, how will the world remember what really happened during World War II?

A nationwide survey conducted in the United States in 2020 found that more than one in ten adults under the age of 40 does not remember ever hearing the word “Holocaust”. The Holocaust Knowledge Survey of Millennials and Generation Z found that many respondents were unclear about the basic facts of the genocide and that nearly 20 percent of Millennials and Generation Z in New York believe that Jews caused the Holocaust.

How are testimonies from Holocaust survivors preserved over time from manipulation and misinformation that cost more and more lives over the years?

Jonathan Dotan, Silicon Valley producer / writer and a senior fellow at Stanford Starling project found the solution: Using blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT) to effectively store, distribute and review testimonials through sophisticated automated tracking and tracing. This will ensure better educational resources and act as a timed news portal in collaboration with leading blockchain companies Hedera Hashgraph and Filecoin, the USC Shoah Foundation founded by Steven Spielberg, and cryptographers from Stanford Engineering.

Put simply, blockchain is a technology that allows data to be digitally sent from person to person in a secure, transparent, anonymous manner and without the intervention of a third party or intermediary.

Blockchain networks are decentralized and are therefore not subject to any state or centralized authority. They are managed by a global network that has no limits or restrictions.

From the Holocaust to the mass violence against Rohingya, this technology is being used for all genocide survivor testimonies to preserve the truth of history at a time when people’s main source of information is social media.

Insisting on the need to preserve the survivors’ testimony, Dotan said, “Thanks to the willingness of some of the last survivors to share their stories, we have received a precious gift: the chance to bring the war back to the center through contemplation . ” through their lived experience. “

“Historical memories of atrocities like genocide are important so that we don’t repeat the same mistakes.”
