Online Resources for Teaching

The following is a compilation of resources that NEH participants and co directors put together.

Part I: Finding and Using Digital Images

Quick Links to Images

Finding digital images often involves finding information about those images. The following websites provide both information about images and the images themselves:

Images in Memorial Museums/Historical Museums/Art Museums

Note: Art museum websites are good places to search for art images, especially if you know the  institution where the artwork resides. Due to many of the artists living in the twentieth century, copyright  may be an issue depending on use, size, and amount of work used. For more information including fair use for educational purposes consult:

Degenerate Art:

Holocaust Memorials 

  • Database of memorials around the globe:
  • Philadelphia Holocaust Memorial:
  • Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe (national site of German remembrance):
  • Yad Vashem (national Israeli Holocaust memorial site, including memorials and a historical museum),
  • New England Holocaust Memorial, Boston, MA
    Located just outside of Quincy Market/Faneuil Hall, and less than a ten minute walk from the TD Garden.  It is also next to the “Freedom Trail.”  The virtual tour feature is highly interactive, and works similar to Google Earth.  Primary documents, letters, videos, etc. are part of the virtual tour. If you are in Boston, it is worth the stop.  From a distance, the glass towers look like frosted glass.  Up close, you realize every number that had been tattooed on a person is etched into the glass.  Stand inside one of the towers and look up.  It is overwhelming.
