Holocaust

Anne Frank Online Born on June 12, 1929, Anne Frank was a German-Jewish teenager who was forced to go into hiding during the Holocaust. She and her family, along with four others, spent 25 months during World War II in an annex of rooms above her father’s office in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. After being betrayed to the Nazis, Anne, her family, and the others living with them were arrested and deported to Nazi concentration camps. Nine months after she was arrested, Anne Frank died of typhus in March of 1945 at Bergen-Belsen. She was fifteen years old.

Cybrary of the Holocaust An exploration into genocide by a group of sixth grade students.

The Holocaust Album: Historical and Contemporary Photographs 'Projects sometimes begin in unexpected ways. In April of 1995 I attended the opening of an exhibit of Holocaust photographs at the Ramat-Gan Museum in the suburbs of Tel-Aviv. I came with a friend, Eric Saul, who had brought the photographs to Israel. The Holocaust Album is my attempt to earn the little engraved medal I received from the Association of Dachau Survivors on that April day in Israel.'

The Holocaust History Project Treblinka was a primitive but efficient production line of death. Understand? Primitive, yes. But it worked well, that production line of death. SS Unterscharführer Franz Suchomel, 1985 The Holocaust History Project is a free archive of documents, photographs, recordings, and essays regarding the Holocaust, including direct refutation of Holocaust-denial.

Dad's China-Burma-India Page A page dedicated to Charles E. Hacking, and those who worked and fought in the forgotten campaign, the CBI Theatre.

Dad Rarey's Sketchbook Journals 'In 1942 my father, George Rarey, a young cartoonist and commercial artist, was drafted into the Army Air Corps. He flew a P-47 before he drove a car. During his service he kept a cartoon journal of the daily life of the fighter pilots. A few weeks after D-Day he was killed in combat over France. His journals are a part of his legacy to me -- one that I want to share with others through this Web page.'

Dad's War Subtitled 'Finding and Telling Your Father's World War II Story,' Johnson's site also includes links to dozens of World War II stories told first hand, and by sons and daughters.

Fly Girls 'During WWII, more than a thousand women signed up to fly with the U.S. military. Women Air Force Service Pilots (WASPS) test-piloted aircraft, ferried planes and logged 60 million miles in the air.' This PBS site tells their story. 

The Tuskagee Airmen: A Tribute To My Father 'During World War II, black fighter pilots fought the Germans abroad and racism in the ranks. May we never forget ... and may future generations understand the way it was...'
