Reviving Holocaust History with Virtual Reality

A shocking 1 out of 5 millennials have not heard of, or are not sure if they have heard of, the Holocaust. Gann Alum Ken Thompson is working to change that by recreating history with Virtual Reality and video game design. With support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Thompson and his team are working on Courtroom 600, a VR experience that lets students take on the role of prosecutor in the Nuremberg Trials.
