Thanking our Donors

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is deeply grateful to the following donors for their generous support of Experiencing History.  To support the Museum's mission, donate here.

The Alexander Grass Foundation

Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany

The Hearst Foundation


Many people contributed to this project, each in their own way. We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of them.  A special thanks to The Alexander Grass Foundation for providing the initial funding and support needed to create Experiencing History: Holocaust Sources in Context.

This project is a cross-divisional effort between multiple offices and divisions of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Content and site development is shared between the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies and the Division of Museum Education and Digital Media at the Levine Institute for Holocaust Education. Many of the materials featured here are due to the digitization and access efforts of the David M. Rubenstein National Institute for Holocaust Documentation. The Museum’s excellent Informational Technologies division maintains the smooth operations of the site daily. Finally, the Museum’s Development Department continues to raise critical funds to keep this site vibrant and growing in perpetuity.

Experiencing History also deploys the critical assistance of numerous content contributors. We gratefully acknowledge the invaluable help of: Esther Adaire, Omri Bassewitch Frenkel, Sara Brinegar, Sean Bye, Nicole Eaton, Tomasz Frydel, Yedida Kanfer, Daniel Kennedy, Adam Knowles, Abigail Lewis, Kathleen Luft, Katarzyna Person, Katarzyna Pietrzak-Kret, Hadar Sadeh Markin, Michal Shaul, Stephen Scala, Amy Simon, Rachel Smith, Lara Szypszak, and Anita Tarnai.
