Product Description
Students across America are helping the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum discover how their local newspapers covered the Nazi threat and the Holocaust in the 1930s and 1940s. Through History Unfolded: US Newspapers and the Holocaust, you and your students can participate in authentic project-based learning through hands-on research using historic newspapers found online or in a local library. Your students will search for newspaper articles about important events in the history of the Holocaust and World War II, think critically about what they find, and reflect on what it reveals about American responses to the Holocaust. Their findings become part of a new national research database to be used by historians, curators, and the public. A lesson plan, student packet, and supporting materials are included.

This bundle includes:
• General information & Step-By-Step Guide for Teachers
• Lesson Plan
• Student Packet
• Historical Summary about How Americans Got Their News in the 1930s and 1940s
