Veditz – Joseph & Enemies & HOPE (info in English below the video box)

discusses the conclusion of Veditz’s Preservation of Sign Language 1913 film within contemporary times and how we need to heed his rally cry.

Translation from Dr. Carol Padden:

“A new race of pharaohs that knew not Joseph” are taking over the land and many of our American schools. They do not understand signs for they cannot sign. They proclaim that signs are worthless and of no help to the deaf. Enemies of the sign language, they are enemies of the true welfare of the deaf.  As long as we have deaf people on earth, we will have signs and as long as we have our films we will be able to preserve our beautiful signs in their original purity. I hope that we all will love and guard our beautiful sign language as the noblest gift God has given to deaf people.”
~ G. Veditz 1913
