For the 80th anniversary of the terrifying events of Kristallnacht in Nazi Germany, C&G Partners worked with the Leo Baeck Institute to develop "1938 PROJEKT: Posts from the Past". The year-long social media, web and exhibit program presents 365 daily posts of archival documents from the year 1938. In transposed real time, they tell the story of how Jewish citizens perceived that increasingly fateful year.
