View collections from Holocaust survivors who settled in Nebraska and from WWII vets who hailed from Nebraska and liberated Nazi camps. Archival materials are preserved in a digital humanities web portal at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Center for Digital Research in the Humanities, https://nestoriesofhumanity.unl.edu/. In addition to transnational open access on the internet for all visitors, the website is a teaching tool that interfaces with digital storytelling to accompany state educational standards in secondary classrooms and higher education research. We will look at how digital methods elevate these stories and at two individuals whose personal archives have provided unexpected historical discoveries and networking within our community. You will be invited to participate in a group inquiry and discussion using the web portal.
