After that, a program undersecretary will evaluate the relevance of your purported testimony and proceed to record your story in a soundproof booth. Depending on the content (and often on the form) of your narration, you will be asked — or not — to appear for further recording sessions, usually no more than five.
You can also contact us for an appointment. Fill out the form, and in the appropriate box explain as best as you can, in the language in which you feel most comfortable, the relevance of your testimony. We will get back to you as soon as we can with further instructions. Depending on the relevance of their testimony, we will visit witnesses and victims with limited mobility at their homes.
Contrary to popular belief, clarified individuals do retain a semblance of their former selves, and we have today facial recognition software able to determine significant correlations between former self and clarified self. So, again, pictures, birth certificates, ID cards, driver licenses, and passports are useful for establishing identity.
We are always in dire need of translators, transcribers, interviewers, and office staff. Translation and transcription happen on a merit-based system that moved testimonies up and down a priority list. Volunteers, managerial staff, registered scholars, and the the COHP board of directors vote online to move the most relevant stories up the priority pipeline.
