Preserving a Bit of Holocaust History by ProQuest

VIEWS: 4 PAGES: 3

Every once in awhile a story comes along that allows people to see how the wonders of modern technology can help them better understand and preserve their past.

This spring, researchers will see the first fruits of those labors. The tragic, historical record of the Holocaust and the war-related stories and events of the victims and resisters should never be forgotten, says Carl Spadoni, director of research collections at McMaster University Library. Gale has enlisted Ristech, a Canadian scanning vendor, to help with the large task of getting this massive and delicate archive digitized.
