Call for Papers: Early Attempts at the Historical Documentation of the Holocaust
EHRI would like to invite you to an international workshop on Early Attempts at the Historical Documentation of the Holocaust, to be held at the Holocaust Memorial Center in Budapest, Hungary on November 27-28, 2012. The overall objective of the EHRI experts' workshops is to generate a creative exchange of knowledge and views between experts in various methodological subfields of Holocaust research and documentation.
EHRI has a fellowship programme (read more about the programme >> ). Between 2010-2014, every year twelve researchers were invited to stay for a period of four weeks to two months at an EHRI partner institute. The call for applications for 2012 was issued in the summer of 2011 and circulated widely. Overall 75 applicants from 22 countries applied for an EHRI fellowship.
Last January over sixty people working for EHRI gathered in Israel for a series of meetings to discuss our initial results. EHRI partner Yad Vashem organized the event, and was host to the 19 partner organisations involved.
Gathering the Voices is a good example of the many projects, big and small, and in various countries, that still contribute to our knowledge of the Holocaust and its impact. In the end EHRI hopes to connect all this material and to create the best environment for Holocaust research.
