Primary vs. Secondary
Primary sources are materials from a topic's time period (firsthand accounts) or was created by a direct witness of an event or time. These materials include letters,
speeches, diaries, newspaper articles from the time, oral history interviews, documents, photographs, artifacts, or anything else that provides
firsthand accounts about a person or event. Quotes from original sources are primary sources, but quotes found in secondary sources (such as your text
book are not primary sources). An interviews with Judith Altmann, who lived during the Holocaust, is considered a primary source but an interview
with a Holocaust expert who did not actually have firsthand knowledge is not a primary source.
