"While participating in the project, students will be engaged in critical thinking and primary source research. They will be riveted by readings—newspapers from the 1930s and 1940s—so different from their usual assignments. Just ask Lisa Henry, an English teacher in Lexington, Kentucky, who told us “history came alive” for her students as they searched for articles about the Holocaust in their local newspaper archives." - History Unfolded
