HIS 102
Extra Credit Special Project
Paper Assignment


The two little girls pictured here, Eva and Leana Munzer, perished in the Holocaust (Auschwitz, February 1944).  There is some more about their story, from Alfred Munzer, scattered on the website of the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC.  Better yet, please visit the museum at least once in your life.

Since all students should enjoy their enrollment in this history course and, at the same time, earn the best possible grade, each student may do one of the HIS 102 Special Projects listed for extra credit.  Each project should be about two pages (maybe longer) in length.  In addition, your project must include complete bibliographic citation at the top left of the page (if necessary) with your name and date.  Some projects have different requirements.

I will also accept as a special project

  • a My Family and History paper that requires you to examine your family's history in light of the historical events of the past half century.  Point value is 50 points possible extra credit for a two-page paper (less for one page). Please note that this paper requires you to email both your course instructor and Professor Evans, cevans@nvcc.edu.
  • a Pop Culture paper in which you look at some aspects of the growing spread of pop culture throughout the world.  Point value is 50 points possible extra credit for a two-page paper (less for one page). 
  • a Historical Translation assignment in which you translate a short passage from a French historical work using online, software tools--you do not really need to know French. Point value is 50 points possible.

Please take a moment to review Charlie's History Writing Center for specific information on the writing requirements for the assignments in the course. Please check this short explanation of what it means to cite historical evidence.

Your assignment should be submitted on Canvas.
