Three Children Identified in 48 Hours
March 24, 2011
Within 48 hours of the Museum’s launch of the Remember Me? Web site, three people identified photos on the site. Two siblings recognized themselves, and a third survivor, recently deceased, was identified by his cousin. The Museum’s Facebook page was key to all three discoveries.
In addition to this social media activity, the campaign garnered attention from traditional media outlets from San Diego to Miami, and from Washington, D.C., to the United Kingdom.
Here is a sampling of this coverage:
The Museum’s Survivors and Victims Resource Center has received some three dozen inquiries since the project launch. The center’s staff are currently following up on these calls and e-mails and will post updates on individual photos in the coming weeks.
