Jamie Bogol Completes Internship at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum

During summer 2010, Jaime Bogol interned at fifth most visited museum in the Washington, D.C. area.  Ms. Bogol had a wide experience – from work as a docent to shared research project.

Through her docent training, she learned how to handle various challenges, from adapting a script to accommodate diverse learners and answering difficult questions brought forth by people with contrary views to exhibit learner outcomes – such as holocaust deniers.

Ms. Bogol assisted curators on a number of programs including the Collaboration and Complicity story.  This will be a museum exhibit projected to be completed for 2013.  Museum staff created a project where interns could interview the curator, engineers, and historians in order to understand how new exhibits were created.  As part of her other duties, Ms. Bogol had the opportunity to interview Holocaust survivors.

Ms. Bogol is in the public history track of our graduate program and will be graduating in December 2010.
