Announcing a November 14 Webinar—History Unfolded: Online Research Sprint

Our colleagues in the Library of Congress Serial and Governement Publications Division are cohosting an online research sprint with the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) for their History Unfolded project on November 14, 2022, 6:00-8:00 PM EST (US and Canada). Search the Library’s historic American newspaper collection, Chronicling America, to find out what people knew and how they reacted to the events leading up to and during the Holocaust.

Staff from the Library of Congress will present the Library’s historic newspaper archive, Chronicling America, and demonstrate how to use the advanced search functions. Staff from USHMM will introduce the History Unfolded project, which investigates U.S. press coverage of several Holocaust-related events. They will instruct participants on how to submit relevant newspaper articles to the History Unfolded database. Following the presentations there will be time to conduct your own research and upload findings to History Unfolded.
