Partnership with US Holocaust Memorial Museum

At a poignant event at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, in Washington DC yesterday, Scotland's First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, unveiled a new partnership and presented the museum with the first copies of photographs from NCAP, on behalf of the people of Scotland.


Historical aerial photography held in NCAP records the Holocaust throughout the Second World War from a unique aerial perspective. By working in partnership with the museum, a programme of digitisation will allow scholars at the museum to enhance their understanding of events on the ground by using aerial photography from NCAP alongside textual records and eyewitness testimony.


In the first instance, the partnership will inform the Camps and Ghettos Encyclopedia Project and provide imagery for the museum's Permanent Exhibition, which provides a comprehensive historical narrative of the Holocaust.
