The Henry Morgenthau, Jr. Holocaust Collections at FDRL

[We have the following announcement.] 

On April 24, 2017, the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum formally launched the Henry Morgenthau, Jr. Holocaust Collections: A Curatorial Project -- a pathfinding initiative to discover unique but dispersed Holocaust subject material across the Roosevelt Library's archival holdings. The project will begin by exploring three major Library collections: the Morgenthau Papers & Diaries, the Records of the War Refugee Board, and the Rudolf Vrba Papers. By introducing emerging practices from the field of digital humanities in developing the project, the Library will provide better access -- building on existing digital resources -- to these Holocaust-related records.  [More.]
