These are some web pages I've found useful and interesting as I completed my own historical research for school projects. I still use them when I'm trying to finesse my lecture notes and presentations - for my college students and my seventh graders!

Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media: I'm proud to be an alumni of the GMU History program, if only for the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (RRCHNM). GMU helped spearhead the "Digital Humanities" movement through the RRCHNM, and whenever people ask me "why history?", I usually offer them the link to this website. The RRCHMN is responsible for providing low cost (or even free) digital platforms for historians to archive and showcase their research, but most importantly, it has bridged traditional historical research methods with new and innovative technological programs.

Students may visit here to see virtual tours and exhibits, photographs, and videos of survivor testimony. If you have a question about the Holocaust, look no further than this website.
