EHRI (European Holocaust Research Infrastructure) invites applications to its two summer schools on Holocaust studies in 2014. The summer schools are being funded by the European Union.

Participants of the 2013 EHRI Summer School in Munich

The first EHRI summer school will be organized by Yad Vashem. The Holocaust Martyrs and Heroes Remembrance Authority in Jerusalem, Israel between 24 April and 15 May 2014. The second EHRI summer school will be organized by NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies in Amsterdam, The Netherlands between 5 July and 25 July 2014. The language of communication during the summer schools will be English.

The summer schools will provide an overview on methods, sources and the state of research in Holocaust history research and will be aimed at the graduate level. The summer schools will be open to scholars from a variety of disciplines (historians, sociologists, psychologists, anthropologists and others interested in the Holocaust) as well as archivists. Candidates from Central and Eastern Europe are especially encouraged to apply. The 12 places in each summer school will be awarded on a competitive basis.

EHRI will cover travel and subsistence costs during the summer school. Recipients are responsible for securing and paying for visas if necessary. All EHRI summer schools share a similar curriculum with topics such as the role of the German elites and general population in the Holocaust, recent developments in the historiography of the ghettos and camps as well as the involvement in and reactions of the local population to the Holocaust in both Western and Eastern Europe. Visits to memorial sites, research libraries and archives will also be included.
