12 Pages Topic Notes Year: Pre-2019

Primary sources are texts (documents, books, films, images or any other kind of evidence) that were produced by someone who participated in a specific era or event. These texts are usually produced at the time of the event but may also be produced afterwards (e.g. an autobiography). They provide direct evidence regarding a topic. For example, Victor Klemperer (1881–1960), I Will Bear Witness: A Diary of the Nazi Years (published 1998) discusses Klemperer’s first-hand experience of life in Nazi Germany (1933–45). Another example of a primary source is a newspaper published during (or shortly after) an historical event. For example, the October 1962 issues of the New York Times provide insight on the Cuban Missile Crisis, which brought the USA and USSR to the brink of war.
