Why did you redesign the website?
The new website improves the organization of the Museum’s vast online resources—from our Holocaust Encyclopedia available in 15 languages, to survivor testimonies, to resources for educators and much more. The new site is designed to make resources more accessible to users in the United States and around the world. Based on considerable research and testing, we expect you will be able to more quickly and easily find the information you seek.
The Museum’s website is the authoritative online source for information on the Holocaust and is visited by some 11 million people from more than 200 countries every year. Our online content has grown enormously as global demand for Museum resources has risen.
In addition to improving the organization of our online content, the site will better utilize our extensive collection of photographs, films, and multimedia.
Why did you choose this design?
The new website incorporates best practices for ease of navigation and improved access to content. The home page carousel enables us to highlight stories about Museum work that have national or international impact. The home page also features upcoming Museum events in Washington, DC, and around the country to enable you to easily find programs in your community.
What are the new features?
The website has a number of new features that will allow you to easily find and share information. Our improved social media functions enable you to find Museum Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and iTunes content and share it among your social networks. We’ve also improved the search function.
How is content organized?
We have organized our content by theme (Learn, Remember, Confront) and by audience (Visitors, Academics and Researchers, Educators, and Professionals and Student Leaders) so that you can more easily find what you’re looking for.
