History Unfolded is an innovative project from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum to learn and contribute to research.
“History Unfolded asks people across the United States to research particular Holocaust-era events in their own local newspapers. Some of these papers are available online, and others are available on microfilm in libraries and archives. While scholars have written extensively about coverage by major newspapers about the Holocaust, the reporting of local papers has not been heavily studied. As a result, the database into which participants (students, teachers, life-long learners) upload these articles will inform both the development of the new special exhibition and research for scholars in the future. Already, a few articles from citizen historians have made their way onto the story boards for the new exhibition.”
