Experiencing History | Holocaust Sources in Context is an open-access primary source tool that offers theme-based collections designed to support university-level study of complex topics through the Holocaust and the history that surrounds it.
This multimedia resource allows students to connect with the human experience of the Holocaust through personal accounts and artifacts curated around purposeful themes that break down complex bodies of knowledge into short, contextualized areas of exploration. Through the study of these compelling first-hand accounts, students are prompted to uncover profound questions and deeply examine the world we live in.

The sources in Experiencing History's collection Black Americans and World War II show how racial discrimination and violence at home shaped Black Americans' responses to fascism, racial hatred, and genocide abroad.
