Oral History/ RM Sessions
Conduct an interview, or share your own story.
Our oral history program strives to preserve the reality of what life was like for those who lived under or fought against a repressive authoritarian dictatorship. We believe that preserving, recording, and sharing firsthand accounts with scholars, history researchers, and the public is a powerful method of keeping the memory of these detrimental yet significant historical events alive. We wish to save not only artifacts but also personal histories so that future generations can gain a better understanding of the past that so fundamentally affects the world of today.
Participate in our educational programming.
Regimes Museum is first and foremost an educational endeavor. One of our primary goals is to foster awareness of human rights issues associated with tyrannical societies. As part of this mission, we have designed, and continue to develop, age-appropriate learning material for use in middle/high schools and universities alike. Through interactive mini-exhibits, specially-designed lectures, and gamification, we are constantly finding ways to make this history engaging and informative to students young and old.
Learn about museum operations firsthand.
Our internship program is designed for college students to enrich their academic pursuits and expose them to the type of work typical for a museum, including archival research and cataloging, publication, exhibition curation, educational programming, and other activities relating to our educational mission.
While internships can be tailored towards certain goals, interested individuals will be tasked with completing a project (emphasis may vary depending on the field of interest) that will be shared either through our blog or other public platforms.
Create educational media with our archives/resources.
The museum produces and screens documentaries and short films to help bring rare and exclusive stories and interviews to the public. This project was launched with the May 2015 screening of our collaborative film Schwarz Weiss, and continues through our YouTube series, Look Into the Archive (which spotlights items in our collection) and RM Sessions (filmed interviews with regime eyewitnesses). Interested individuals may submit topics or scripts, or get more deeply involved with production.
