Stories

This platform utilizes narrative and primary resources to contribute to Holocaust memory. While general Nebraska resettlement research from this period continues to develop, the site presently highlights five individuals. Over time and through continued archival collection, the number of people featured will increase. These shared stories provide opportunities to learn about the experiences of Holocaust survivors and camp liberators who lived as neighbors in Nebraska communities. Interaction with the narratives resonates with Elie Wiesel’s notion of becoming a witness to the memory of oppressed peoples. When we combine the voices of testimony with other aggregated data and primary resources in a digital, interactive format, we give universality to the meaning of Holocaust memory and the historicity of these Nebraska stories.
