The bulk of the tapes consists either of interviews with the descendants of pioneer Jewish families in this region or are recordings of accounts of prejudice (especially anti-Semitism) or intolerance which were given at the Anne Frank Exhibit's tolerance talks at Tucson's Jewish Community Center in September of 1995. Major topics of the testimonies given include prejudice against Jews, blacks, and homosexuals.

There are also two tapes with recordings of Sephardic songs and prayers in this collection.
