BBC News Story Highlights Use of Social Media to Identify Photos
April 18, 2011
A BBC News story that aired April 6, 2011, focused on how the Museum is using social media to determine the fates of children who were displaced at the end of World War II. Within 24 hours of a friend seeing his photo on Facebook, one of the young survivors, Michel Sztulzaft, was identified. He has since shared his wartime experiences with us.
And the viral communication continues: After the BBC News story was broadcast, we heard from another man who found his father-in-law’s photo on the Web site. We will be speaking with him soon and will post an update in a few weeks
