Technology and the Preservation of Memory


On 16 May the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum will hold an event entitled "New Frontiers: Technology and the Preservation and Presentation of Memory".

As the World War II generation diminishes, profound challenges face us: how to teach about the Holocaust without survivors’ unique, authentic voices. Explore the potential of new technologies, including virtual reality, to educate younger generations on the relevance of history.
