The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. has millions of documents. For students researching Nazi Germany and the Holocaust, it’s easy to get lost.

University of South Dakota associate professor of history David Burrow teaches a course on the Holocaust. He was at the museum last week for a pilot program designed to help students access the archives on-line.  Burrow was accepted into the 2014 United States Holocaust Museum's summer workshop, "Teaching the Holocaust Digitally: A Source Study Approach." Burrow will integrate the materials into his spring 2015 course at USD.
