From Kyra Schuster, Curator
United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
We're halfway through our Kickstarter campaign to Save Their Stories: cataloging and publishing online more than 200 diaries of Holocaust victims and survivors. I've seen your heartfelt comments, tweets, and posts about our project, and I'm so inspired by the outpouring of support we've received already-so far over 3,396 people have come together to make sure these important accounts of the Holocaust are brought to the public. But this is all or nothing-if we don't meet our goal, we don't get any funding at all. And there are just two weeks left!
Check out the project page for more details about the meaningful difference you'll make-and the rewards available exclusively to project backers. Some of these have run out already, so don't delay!
I hope you'll join us and help Save Their Stories today.
