Based on a unique record of almost 14,000 children from the Holocaust, the collaborative history lab, Children of the Lodz Ghetto: A Memorial Research Project, invites learners to take an active role in our understanding of the past. As "citizen historians," participants investigate children from the Lodz ghetto via an on-line research "lab" that structures the search, provides access to primary and secondary historical sources, and allows direct feedback from experts and peers.

This project creates an authentic research and learning environment that asks learners to struggle together with the challenge of uncovering what is still unknown—what happened to these children. Yet, the project also ties individual research to the larger questions of how the Holocaust occurred. Working within this social research environment, participants improve critical thinking skills and gain a more complex understanding of historical events.
