History Unfolded

The Center for Jewish History is proud to host two History Unfolded Workshop Events on February 24th and March 24th, 2019 in collaboration with History Unfolded: US Newspapers and the Holocaust, a program of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) in support of their upcoming exhibition on American reactions to the Holocaust. More on History Unfolded: https://www.ushmm.org/learn/history-unfolded

Citizen historians are invited to register for a research account on the History Unfolded website prior to visiting the Center for Jewish History to conduct research in newspaper collections and investigate US press coverage for specific Holocaust events.

Participants will gain hands-on instruction for using online tools to search for newspaper articles as well as physically handling collections. These workshops help the Holocaust Memorial Museum to discover what Americans knew and how they responded to news of Nazi persecution. Users can submit their findings to the USHMM’s online database which will be available to anyone, anywhere—from historians to curators to students.
