The ‘Buchenwald’ project is the successor of the ‘Radio Oranje’ project that aimed at the transformation of a set of World War II related mono-media documents –speeches of the Dutch Queen Wilhelmina, textual transcripts of the speeches, and a database of WWII related photographs– to an attractive online multimedia presentation of the Queen’s speeches with keyword search functionality [6, 3]. The ‘Buchenwald’ project links up and extends the ‘Radio Oranje’ approach. The goal in the project was to develop a Dutch multimedia information portal on World War II concentration camp Buchenwald1. The portal holds both textual information sources and a video collection of testimonies from 38 Dutch camp survivors with durations between a half and two and a half hours. For each interview, an elaborate description, a speaker profile and a short summary are available.
