Re: CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: Interactive EHRI Online Course in Holocaust Studies

A word about this wonderful EHRI online course.

I am now completing this course after initially debating whether it might simply repeat information about topics with which I am already acquainted. I couldn’t have been more wrong.

I can't tell you how glad I am that I did it. I'll share just a few reasons but, instead of getting too specific, I invite any of you to be in touch with me by email if you have any questions about some of the especially interesting parts of this course on primary sources.
