The resources available to us via the Internet are amazing…

January 16, 2012

…I am constantly amazed by some of the information available to us courtesy of the Internet. As a Librarian, there were times when one might have to learn one or two foreign langauges and travel thousands of miles to read historical documents. Via the Internet, some of these are now available in English in seconds.

Longterm readers of my blog would know of my attempts to find information about the terrain of the Pipyet Marshes. Amongst the things I found is this translation of a report made by an SS Sturmbannfuehrer which makes reference to them.

It is thanks to groups like Yad Vashem: The Holocaust Martyrs’ and Heroes’ Remembrance Authority  that documents like these are available. May we all learn, remember and prevent events like this from happening again.
