Digital Archive: International History Declassified
History and Public Policy Program, Woodrow Wilson Center
The Wilson Center Digital Archive brings together and contextualizes a vast trove of once-secret documents relating to the Cold War, North Korea, and nuclear proliferation. Much more than just an archive, the site curates a variety of topics into compelling narratives, timelines, and images. In addition, multiple interfaces, including an interactive map, allow researchers to make their own pathways through this important collection.
