Internship Posting - Working with German World War II Interviews and Documentation for The World War II History Project: Thursday, August 31 (Application Deadline)

Since 2010, the non-profit World War II History Project has collected over 185 interviews (over 500 hours of video) with World War II veterans, in addition to various primary source materials, in English, French and German (in total, over 6 TB of documentation). Now the World War II History Project needs your help to bring these stories to the public.

It is offering an unpaid internship for History and German students transcribing and translating video interviews with German WW2 veterans, as well as their letters, journals, and first-hand accounts.

These internships are virtual/remote, so the organizers are flexible with the number of hours you work per week, as well as when you work. Starting and ending dates are flexible. The organizers promise to tailor-design the internship to your specific interests.

However, you are expected to be in regular phone contact so that you receive guidance, resolve problems, and articulate your feedback. The World War II History Project will require you to meet per Skype for one hour per week (potentially with multiple interns) to review your progress and discuss what you’ve learned, which direction you’d like to move in, and your ideas.

Send your resume and cover letter to Heather Steele at
