Since January 2011 EHRI issues a newsletter at regular intervals. The first two EHRI Newsletters were in PDF format. You can download them here:

The following EHRI Newsletters were and are in the form of e-Newsletters. You can find the articles on the News items pages.

We are currently enhancing the functionalities of our website by gradually developing the EHRI Community Hub. The aim of the Community Hub is to offer the archival and research communities interested in the Holocaust the opportunity to virtually collaborate with each other on our website, and to get more tightly involved in EHRI. You can already register for the hub and make a profile.

The Hub also allows members to access and comment on selected EHRI documents, like the National Reports, and in some cases to create their own community groups.

EHRI organizes several expert meetings and regional workshops. The overall objective of the EHRI experts' workshop is to generate a creative exchange of knowledge and views between experts in various methodological subfields of Holocaust research and documentation. The regional workshops will be targeted at a more general audience that wants to get acquainted with EHRI. The expert meetings and workshops are always held at one of EHRI’s partner institutions. The latest calls and dates can be found on the Events & Workshops page.

EHRI has a fellowship programme. Every year twelve researchers will be invited to stay for a period of four weeks to two months at an EHRI partner institute. There will be three calls, in 2011, 2012 and 2013. The EHRI Fellowship call of 2012 (offering fellowships for 2013) is closed. The next call will be in 2013, offering the same kind of opportunities for fellows in 2014. Read more about the EHRI Fellowship Programme call of 2012.

EHRI organizes four summer schools: two in 2013, and two in 2014. 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 first EHRI summer school will take place at the Shoah Memorial – Museum, Center for Contemporary Jewish Documentation, Paris, France between 15 July and 2 August 2013. The second EHRI summer school will be organized by the Institute of Contemporary History Munich – Berlin in Munich, Germany between 22 July and 9 August 2013. Find out more about the EHRI Summer Schools and how to apply.

Several surveys will be held to find out more about you, the users of our future online portal for Holocaust research, or institutions that hold collections related to the Holocaust. At the moment all surveys are completed.
