‘I will remember the EHRI Summer School as a unique experience!’
Adriana Markantonatos from Germany, student EHRI Summer School Parijs

The EHRI Summer School in Holocaust Studies is a graduate-level seminar aimed at deepening the knowledge and comprehension of the extermination process of European Jews during World War II. It also provides a comprehensive overview on the most relevant methodologies and sources as well as an update on the current state of research in the field of Holocaust history. The seminar tackles the history of the Shoah from a European perspective. It is strictly hinged on sources, the latest historiographic interpretations and the most recent research work in the field. Traditional lectures alternate with more intensive document-based work sessions and visits to important archives, museums and memorial sites.

‘In sum, the EHRI Summer School was an inspiring and amazing experience for me. I learned so much on the Holocaust and Holocaust research, and I got new insights and inspirations for my MA thesis.’ Daan de Leeuw, the Netherlands

In 2013, EHRI organized two Summer Schools in Holocaust Studies, one in Paris and one in Munich. The Paris Summer School was hosted by EHRI partner Mémorial de la Shoah, the Munich Summer School by the Center for Holocaust Studies at the Institut für Zeitgeschichte. Both summer schools were attended by twelve participants, young researchers and students, that followed an intensive three week course in Holocaust Studies. Looking back, the stories of the participants and organisers are extremely positive. The EHRI Summer School Munich took place between July 22 and August 9, 2013. The first two weeks the participants stayed at the Akademie für Politische Bildung in Tutzing at the beautiful Lake Starnberg. The last week they were in Munich in a student’s dormitory.
