Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute

Serafima Velkovich

Serafima Velkovich has been working at Yad Vashem for ten years. She holds a Master`s degree from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. A researcher in the Reference and Information Department of the Yad Vashem Archives division, Velkovich was closely involved in the indexing and digitization of names material from Eastern Europe in Yad Vashem`s databases. She lectures on the use of Yad Vashem resources for genealogical and other research to various groups. She wrote several articles  concerning different Holocaust related topics.

Being an EHRI fellow, I am planning to research in the Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw. The theme of the research is "Mapping the names in the Holocaust related materials in The Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute (┼╗IH)"
