History Unfolded is a project of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Here’s how they describe it:

What could Americans have known about the Nazi threat from reading their local newspapers in the 1930s and 1940s? You can help the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum find out. Join our team of citizen historians whose research will be shared with scholars, curators, and the public.

They have a special page for educators, including lesson plans and resources. Students research newspaper archives to identify articles to contribute to the museum’s database.

I’m adding it to The Best Sites Where Students Can Transcribe Historical Texts.
