Some Were Neighbors: Collaboration and Complicity in the Holocaust,” is a new and impressive interactive online exhibition from U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.
Here’s how it describes its theme:
Millions of ordinary people witnessed the crimes of the Holocaust—in the countryside and city squares, in stores and schools, in homes and workplaces. Across Europe, the Nazis found countless willing helpers who collaborated or were complicit in their crimes. What motives and pressures led so many individuals to abandon their fellow human beings? Why did others make the choice to help?
You can also read more about it at an extensive Education Week article.
It’s particularly timely since January 27th is International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
I’m adding this info to The Best Sites For Learning About The Holocaust, which includes links to many other features on the Museum’s website.
