More Work with Yad Vashem
This really is a most useful site. I’ve now looked through their archives. There is much what I call “real-time” witnessing – talking about events as they happened – diaries, letters, etc and of course photographs. There are lots of many fascinating books – I’ve added a fair few to my extra reading list. The education programme is also very good. This may come in very useful for some of my school visits later, though naturally by then I should have quite a lot of my own material. There is the opportunity also for some academic publishing though I fear that what I am dealing with in this project is more on the edge of the Holocaust. They also have several interesting research projects underway and some completed ones. I wonder where there is a similar platform for Potatoes in Spring.
