In collaboration with “History Unfolded: US Newspapers and the Holocaust”, a program of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM), Leo Baeck Institute and the Center for Jewish History are hosting a “History Sprint.” Citizen historians are invited to conduct research in newspaper collections and investigate US press coverage for specific Holocaust events in 1938. Participation in the project helps 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. This program will take place in the Lillian Goldman Reading Room.

Please note: This event ends at 2pm.

Free; registration required at mmccarthy@cjh.org. After registration you will receive an email with more details as to the research topics and process
