Making the History of 1989
CHNM received generous support from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the German Historical Institute (Washington D.C.) to create Making the History of 1989, a new website on the collapse of Communism in Eastern Europe in 1989.Making the History of 1989 has three key features providing students, teachers, and scholars free and open access to:
- hundreds of high quality primary sources on or related to the events of 1989 and the end of the Cold War in Europe;
- multimedia interviews with prominent historians that make visible the processes by which historians transform events and sources into historical narratives; and
- lesson plans, document based questions, and strategies that provide context for teaching the history of 1989 with primary sources.
