European Holocaust Research Infrastructure
The EHRI-3 project will run from 2020-2024. It deepens the integration of Holocaust archives and research that has been undertaken by EHRI since 2010. The project will lead to:
- a substantial increase in the coverage of the EHRI Portal, particularly with regards to the holdings of micro-archives;
- the development of new digital tools that connect dispersed Holocaust sources;
- the delivery of state-of-the-art training and education opportunities for researchers and archivists;
- the continuation and enhancement of the Conny Kristel Fellowship Programme.
The EHRI Preparatory Phase project (EHRI-PP) will run from 2019-2022. EHRI was added to the European Strategy Forum for Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) Roadmap in 2018 and is currently transforming itself from a project into a permanent organisation that will help secure the future of trans-national Holocaust research, commemoration and education. EHRI will undertake all the necessary legal, financial and strategic work to have this permanent organisation fully operational by January 2025, the 80th-anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
EHRI-PP and EHRI-3 are coordinated by NIOD and are funded through the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme.
EHRI overcomes the fragmentation of sources and expertise by connecting sources, institutions and people. The EHRI Portal [https://portal.ehri-project.eu/ ]enables online access to information about Holocaust sources, no matter where they are located. The Conny Kristel Fellowship gives researchers access to the resources of the world's twenty leading Holocaust archives. EHRI's extensive programme of networking and training brings people together. Last but not least, EHRI promotes innovative tools that advance the digital transformation of Holocaust research.
Cooperation: Currently, EHRI has 25 partners, representing archives, libraries, museums and research institutions, listed here.
