Salem State faculty members travel institute featured in National Geographic’s Geostories

National Geographic’s Geostories is highlighting Christopher Mauriello’s and Stephen Matchak’s summer 2012 Study and Travel Institute: WWII in Eastern Europe.

This GeoStory is a joint project of Cengage Learning and National Geographic and is part of his ongoing research into the Holocaust in Germany. The idea initiated with Professor Mauriello’s participation at the Hess Faculty Seminar at the USHMM in Washington, DC, during his sabbatical in January 2012.

The team members of this cross-discipline university initiative include: Professor Stephen Matchak (geography) who contributed an essay and photographs; history graduate students Beth Factor (who contributed research and an essay) and Mark Curry (who contributed many of the photographs). Other Salem State undergraduate and graduate students and a student from Providence College worked on this project through providing photography, mapping and researching services.
