Research Sprint | History Unfolded: U.S. Newspapers & the Holocaust

When: Wed., July 27, 5:30-7:30 p.m. 2022

What did Virginia newspapers report about Nazi persecution during the 1930s and 1940s? In partnership with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the Library of Virginia offers this virtual “research sprint” 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. 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. This is a free event. Registration required.
