- Nuremberg Trials Project
The Harvard Law School Library has approximately one million pages of documents relating to the trial of military and political leaders of Nazi Germany before the International Military Tribunal (IMT) and to the twelve trials of other accused war criminals before the United States Nuremberg Military Tribunals (NMT).
The documents, which include trial transcripts, briefs, document books, evidence files, and other papers, have been studied by lawyers, scholars, and other researchers in the areas of history, ethics, genocide, and war crimes, and are of particular interest to officials and students of current international tribunals involving war crimes and crimes against humanity.
To preserve the contents of these documents--which are now too fragile to be handled--and to provide expanded access to this material, the Library has begun a digital project to create and present images or full-text versions of its Nuremberg documents on the Internet, along with analytical information about each document and general information about the trials.
- The Shoah Education Project
...An effort at educating the public, and the Church about the Shoah, or Holocaust. All have heard of the holocaust, only a few comprehend its lessons. Few survivors remain, only a few eyewitnesses, and as they age, we lose the critical eyewitness that makes historical accounts pale. The word "Shoah" is the Hebrew word for gale, or violent storm indicating the turbulent and angry waters of death and pain and grief, that did indeed reach every shore. The shores of every nation are still touched by Shoah. Survivors live wounded lives and we are in one sense or anther, children of the Shoah. This "Shoah Education Project" in an attempt to change hearts, to change perspectives, to make us all far more than tolerant of each other. Both the persons who tormented and persecuted, and the persons who were victimized and suffered, were initially, persons just like us. This program was designed to teach Shoah Education in the Church and Synagogue, but is adaptable for all uses.

- European Resistance Archive (ERA)
ERA is a space in which individual stories of people having resisted against the terror, humiliation and despair fascism brought over Europe are kept alive and visible for everybody.
The protagonists and eyewitnesses will disappear in the next years. Soon, there will be no other testimonies of the happenings apart from those having been collected, recorded, recounted and written down. The value of eyewitness interviews is unique. No book or film can replace the opportunity of watching eyewitnesses tell their stories of resistance and independent decision to do so.
The European Resistance Archive will enable the documentation of this precious knowledge. It offers video interviews with women and men having taken part in the antifascist resistance. In Europe, these testimonies are often only available to those personally visiting archives or documentary centres.

* Eventually, when the database has reached sufficient size, assist European governments in Holocaust-era forensic identifications
