We are proud to showcase the work of students from all over the country that we’ve connected with through our Time of Remembrance Website.
We warmly invite students (and teachers) to share first-hand accounts of tough topics, such as immigration, displacement, genocide – along with stories of those who have found the courage to stand-up and speak out on behalf of others.
As we explain on our About page, the Time of Remembrance Project recognizes that history happens one story at a time. We seek to showcase stories not necessarily included in textbooks. We encourage students to explore and document historical events through interviewing family, community members, authors, educators and others with eyewitness accounts.
The Student Gallery is an ongoing invitation and project. From audio files to videos recorded on cell phones, mobile devices or cameras, we welcome your immigration stories. As new submissions come in, we will continue to add them to the Student Gallery.
