Experiencing History, the US Holocaust Memorial Museum's digital portal for primary sources on the Holocaust, has launched a new section of content. "Everyday Life: Roles, Motives, and Choices During the Holocaust" examines how the rise of Nazi Germany and the onset of the Holocaust changed the conditions of everyday life for millions of people. In an era of violence and upheaval, individuals confronted difficult choices and new social and political pressures. How did they respond to these challenges? What values, roles, and loyalties influenced their decisions? Sources in our new explore the complex and intersecting motivations and behaviors within everyday life during the Holocaust.
