This page is dedicated to the study of the US & the Holocaust. Together, we will be exploring the ways in which US citizens, media, political officials, and civil society organizations reacted to and understood the events that took place in Europe between 1939 - 1945 that have come to be known as the Holocaust. Our hope is to shine light on the ways that the Holocaust was understood and percieved at the time so that we can better understand its legacies and place in our histories today.
