A Museum delegation recently traveled to Jordan to witness firsthand the plight of refugees fleeing the violence in Syria and to document—in word and in image—one of the worst humanitarian crises in decades.
In the Museum’s archives, David Bayer found documents about his Holocaust experiences, including the last time he was with his parents and siblings before they were killed. Through the World Memory Project, you can help make historical records searchable online for free.
