Meet Flat Mendes!
Mendes Cohen was an inveterate traveler and man-about-town, active in civic life and his community. We want to continue his journeys by sending "Flat Mendes" out into the world.
Next, print and cut out your Flat Mendes and start snapping photos! Make sure to share with us using #AmazingMendes.
Practice Using Primary Sources!
Below are some activities you can explore using primary sources like Mendes Cohen's letters he wrote while traveling and the "Jew Bill" to think critically.
You Have Mail!
Mendes, like most of us, is pretty lonely stuck at home these days. He would love to receive a letter from you telling him about where you live and what you're up to.
If you send Mendes a letter, he will write you one back!
