Private Schwarz Scrapbook

This project is a digitization of Albert Schwarz’s WWII scrapbook. The main goals of this site are to make this artifact more accessible and provide different ways to view Albert’s journey during his time in the army.

You can use this site to look at the scanned pages with or without the transcriptions, whichever you prefer. Other features of this site include an interactive story map that tracked his travels and exhibits about his closest friends and family.
