and How to Use the Cybrary

This Web site planning, design and development is the product of Michael Dunn, Gudrun Fehrer Dunn, and The Write Thing,Copyright 1995. The Foundation forCommunication Strategies-Romania, represented by Dorotea and StefanNiculescu-Maier, assisted in the content development of the WWW site. The CD-ROM and this WWW sitebenefited from a number of generous contributors. Barbara Goodman and AdrianSchreck of the Northern California Holocaust Center provided access to the foursurvivors’ videotapes, created by the Oral History Project of San Francisco,which are the stories that the CD-ROM revolves around. The Jerusalem One andNysernet Internet sites provided detailed educational materials on the Internetwhich were included subject to being electronically distributed; the Dachauconcentration camp educational materials were also included for educationalpurposes. Gary Grobman’s excellent lesson plans give teachers the opportunityto explore this subject. Finally, Harold Gordon has agreed to putsome of his writings and an offer of email access for thosestudents wanting to have a dialogue with a survivor. Together, these resources form the bulk of the Cybrary’s content, aswell as The Write Thing’s own research and artwork. Anne Williams, a sixthgrade teacher in Paradise, contributed the artwork of her students to the ImagineArt Gallery providing a unique, imagination-driven component which enhanced theproject. I am indebted to her persistence and drive.

The text for this project has been designed around an exhaustive educationalprogram about the Holocaust designed by Gary Grobman. His work allowed us tointegrate his lesson plans into the other historical materials. The following ishis copyright. We thank him for his achievement and for making this available toeducators, subject to his agreement which follows some basic rules of usage.We’re in it only for sharing the knowledge and providing a learning resource freeof charge.
