The Treasury of Memories website is a documentation centre and a collection of video, audio and written testimonies by Slovenians who have entrusted their personal and family stories to a wider audience of listeners, viewers and readers. The project brings memories of people who have experienced the World War II, refugee, exile period, separation from families, a journey to an unknown world and the creation of new foundations for life. With the website, we want to join the witnesses and invite them to come to us through their stories and memories. Editors of the project entitled the Treasury of Memories are co-workers of the Study Centre for National Reconciliation Marta Keršič and Mirjam Dujo Jurjevčič.
The testimonies of Slovenians from North and South America, Europe and the testimonies of the Slovenians living in the neighbouring countries are on view. The first testimonies were recorded at the Study Centre for National Reconciliation in 2009, and the collection has continued since then. In the future, also the testimonies of Slovenians living in the motherland of Slovenia shall be prepared for the publication. Published material is collected and archived in the physical and digital form in the Archive of Testimonies of the Study Centre for National Reconciliation (hereinafter referred to as the SCNR Archive of Testimonies) and represents rich material for research, study, educational and other purposes. The collection is supplemented by photographic and documentary material, likewise stored in the SCNR Archive of Testimonies. The website creation is supported by the Office of the Republic of Slovenia for Slovenians abroad site.
