History Unfolded: U.S. Newspapers & the Holocaust

VIRTUAL EVENT Volunteer to help uncover history with us! What did Virginia newspapers report about Nazi persecution during the 1930s and 1940s? In partnership with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Virginia Holocaust Museum, the Library of Virginia offers three virtual “research sprints” into our newspaper collection. By identifying Holocaust-related articles in Virginia newspapers, we will begin to understand what the average Virginian could have known during WWII. Orientation to History Unfolded will be provided by United States Holocaust Memorial Museum staff members. Local Virginia historical context will be given by the Virginia Holocaust Museum, with an introduction to accessing historic newspapers online from Library of Virginia staff members. Minimum age is 16 (12 with an adult). For more information, contact Sonya Coleman at makinghistory@virginiamemory.com.

Volunteers will be emailed the Zoom link and instructions the week of each event.
