The Spy's Dilemma

Photograph of U.S. government classified documents“The Spy’s Dilemma” allows you to become a Cold War spy for the Soviet Union while accessing the documents from the LBJ Library.  Participants collaborate in this hands-on experiential activity to help their government gain information from the United States in the 1960s.  Participants will analyze, interpret, and evaluate documents to save their lives and avoid being sent to a Soviet gulag.
