Alison Kitchens, US Holocaust Memorial Museum, USA

The US Holocaust Memorial Museum launched a new online exhibition, Burma’s Path to Genocide, in May 2020. The exhibition explores how the Rohingya, a religious and ethnic minority in Burma, became targets of a sustained campaign of genocide. During this demonstration, a project team member shares what the Museum team learned working on this online exhibition. She will discuss, among other topics, crafting content that is easy for audiences to understand, creating templates for a content management system, designing “immersive” experiences online, and making the site accessible for audiences.
