Online Education Begins With You
Welcome to October at the Cybrary. We’ve just been included in the NetSurf section of Wired, who said the Cybrary “stands alone as a serious and illuminating stop on the Web.” The reason it does is your participation. Last month I talked about how this site has grown around the contributions of the audience. This month, as always, proved this right. Our Links section has grown so much we’ve made it a separate page.
How You Can Help
By being a participant, you can help us fill a few gaps. We get repeated requests for more photos, more research on special topics like resistance, and requests for people looking for information on relatives during the Holocaust. Any assistance is appreciated; if you have materials you can share, we can likely find them a home, or help link to them.
For those seeking answers about what happened to their relatives, Yad Vashem might be a good first stop. They have a database at the Hall of Names, where they can search by name. They will mail you the results. I’ve heard from several visitors that this is a good service. Let me know of any others and I’ll include them.
A Project Needs your Assistance
Here is something you can help a viewer, Jon Bridge (Jon1950@aol.com), with:
I am working on a project with the Wing Luke Asian Museum in Seattle on Chuine Sugihara in exhibition form. We are looking for survivors of the Holocaust who benefited from issuance of Japanese transit visas by him in Kovno Lithuania in 1940 and 1941. If any are living the Pacific Northwest or Seattle in particular we would like them to participate in a program involving Seattle’s Asian and Jewish communities. If anyone can assist please E-Mail or call me at (206) 448-8800, ext. 6866.
A Call for Non-English Books on the Holocaust
A visitor wrote asking for bibliographies of books written in languages other than English. He provided the following first step,written by the Swedish Committee againstAntisemitism.
Title: ‘Det eviga hatet’
Written by: V/A
I’ll do my best to find more titles to the list later on.
Can anyone help us with some more ideas? Fill out the form below.
