Between their triptychs and impressive prints, the Victoria and Albert Museum's Medieval & Renaissance collection covers a broad range of artistic traditions and human history. First-time visitors will want to start with the "Features" section. Here they can view interactive online exhibits that deal with Leonardo da Vinci and the famed Raphael Cartoons, which were commissioned by Pope Leo X.

In the "Objects" area, visitors can learn about individual objects in their holdings, including the Choir screen from the Cathedral of St. John in Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands. Their weblog, "Past, Present and Future" is a real find, as it contains posts on upcoming medieval exhibitions, touring exhibitions, conservation efforts, and curatorship. The "Conservation Case Studies" offer details on the conservation work on objects like the fagade of Sir Paul Pindar's home (a part of a London timber-framed house that predates the Great Fire of 1666) and an altarpiece from 1428.

11. Education: Witnessing the Holocaust
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

This online BBC archive, Witnessing the Holocaust: Personal Accounts of a Crime Against Humanity, has radio and television programs from 1945-2005, and documents from 1942-1945, that reveal the horrors and aftermath of the Holocaust. Visitors interested in listening to or watching video or audio programs can scroll down the page to view the 17 programs available.

The programs with a blue speaker icon next to the title denote a radio program, and those with a right-facing arrow next to the title indicate that there is a video available. Each program is accompanied by a written synopsis of the program, as well as a section entitled "Did You Know?" that has little known facts pertaining to the subject of the program. The radio programs range from a 1945 four-minute broadcast from a Canadian reporter entitled "Gestapo in Holland", to an almost hour-long 2003 broadcast called "Marianne Grant", about the artist's heart-wrenching story of having to paint for Dr. Mengele at Auschwitz. The video programs include a 1989 interview with "Simon Wiesenthal" as well as a 2005 broadcast, "Grandchild of the Holocaust", about a grandson and his grandmother who was the only Holocaust survivor of her family.
