|You Can Help Build The Hannah Project
Become a volunteer
member of our research team.
Be part of a network of academic volunteers, including Holocaust scholars and
students involved in areas such as womens studies, library science, and museum
archiving. Help locate, review and annotate web sites, books, articles and journals. Help
identify currently unknown diaries, letters, creative efforts such as poetry and art,
photography, and artifacts which can assessed, cataloged, preserved, and, where
appropriate, made available through the virtual archive. Organize a "resistance
collection drive" in your community to gather the stories of women who may have
remained silent about their acts of bravery. Your efforts can insure that the voices of
these remarkable women no longer remain unheard. Hold a benefit event to honor these women
and raise funds for The Hannah Project. Or call us with your own idea!
Develop educational curriculum materials.
The mission of The Hannah Project is to educate and inspire all individuals
but especially young people to learn, understand and remember the courage and
sacrifices of this historically unrecognized group of women. We are seeking educators
interested in volunteering their time to develop K-12 curriculum based on the National
Standards in areas such as global studies and language arts. Lesson plans, supplemented by
primary source documents available for download from the site, will allow teachers to
incorporate the issues surrounding gender and resistance to the Holocaust into their
Our goal is to employ the finest information management and display technology
available, including the Internet, to identify, preserve, and make available to anyone in
the world in many cases for the first time the incredible, untold stories of
these remarkable women. We are dedicated to identifying, cataloging, preserving and making
available the stories of all women involved in Holocaust resistance activities, not just
those for whom materials have already been identified and preserved. Anyone may add
relevant materials to the virtual archives at no cost. The Hannah Project provides
technical assistance in assessing and cataloging materials, as well as providing all
imaging services required to transform those materials into digital format.
The costs of developing and maintaining such a
technologically sophisticated preservation effort are comparable to that of a large
corporation with a full information management department. We are a small staff of
volunteers working together from locations throughout Israel and the U.S. Your financial
contribution will help us grow and maintain this ongoing effort to recognize and preserve
the voices and acts of women resistance fighters throughout the world.
