The US Holocaust Memorial Museum's digital teaching tool for the college classroom, Experiencing History, offers students and teachers an innovative platform for exploring original materials on a wide variety of themes of topics. As part of a broader effort to examine themes related to eugenics, we've added two new primary source collections to the tool. Family Life During the Holocaust explores how, for both Jews and non-Jews, eugenics helped reshape the meaning, structure, and functions of family life in Nazi Germany and Europe more broadly. Nazi Ideals and American Society features sources that illustrate the cross-pollination of eugenic thought in the United States and Nazi Germany.
