Event description
Participatory research event. Find new content for the History Unfolded Project using microfilmed newspapers at the Library of Congress.

About this Event

By the fall of 1941, German doctors had already murdered tens of thousands of people with disabilities, Jews in Germany were publicly marked with yellow stars, and American isolationists still sought to keep the U.S. out of World War II.

Help us find out how these pivotal events were reported as they happened by researching microfilmed newspapers from across America.
