Holocaust Museum to use Holograms of Holocaust
A research team at the University of Southern California is working to create holograms of elderly Holocaust survivors that could be used by
museums as part of an interactive, oral history exhibit. Once developed, these holograms could be projected into the air so that museum visitors can
approach them and ask them questions, according to the Associated Press. Each hologram will be accompanied by a voice-recognition program, that will
“hear” what museum-goers ask and provide answers. Pinchas Gutter, who was incarcerated in a Warsaw ghetto for more than three years before being
moved to the labor camps, including Buchenwald, was one of the first Holocaust survivors to participate in the digital archiving program. To create
his hologram, Gutter answered nearly 500 questions from researchers over a five day period. To ensure high-fidelity playback, he was filmed with 3-D
cameras from every possible angle on a light stage. The lights are hot, the work taxing, but many aging survivors are willing to withstand the
discomfort to provide their testimony. Or as Gutter’s digital likeness told the audience during a recent demonstration, “I tell my story for the
purpose of improving humanity.”
So the Sadist says....
First and most obvious, as a person who wasn't born until the late 60's, I was not there during WWII to see anything at all. All of my information
is at best, second hand.
But I do know a thing or two.
The victors like to write history in a flattering manner. They have a vested interest in making sure it stays that way.
My only real comment on this, and much of what I am going to say is meant to be left up to your own personal interpretation. There seems to be a
rather large effort, a machine if you will, in place to make certain that the Holocaust is never forgotten.
But Sadist, isn't that a good thing? Don't you want to make sure people aren't treated the same way the people of the jewish faith were in
Personally, I would like to see a world where we are allowed to live and breathe happily. One without the unnecessary censorship of others. One where
peace happens daily, and nobody dies needlessly.
But yet, we are inundated with films and other vectors of information from MSM that are constantly looking to drive a point home. A point that earns
money. Alot of money. And the vestment in that interest appears to grow, if not exponentially, every single day.
There are no efforts on this level to tell the story of the Native American Indians. What about how the Irish were treated when they immigrated here
to the US ? There were injustices left right and center throughout history. But, the Holocaust somehow is different, is special.
So, I'm throwing this live round into a crowded chamber.
I'm not going to respond to anything anyone has to say, other than to observe and to read. I know there will be may responses to this. I will
probably be accused of many things, and labeled this or that. I'm ok with this. Someone here accused me of intentionally inciting others. Hmmm.
I just found this interesting, and thought provoking.
