The aim of the EHRI Community Hub is to offer the archival and research communities interested in the Holocaust the opportunity to virtually collaborate with each other, and to get more tightly involved in the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI).

At the moment the EHRI Community Hub is transferred from the EHRI website to the EHRI Portal and Virtual Research Environment, that will be launched in March 2015. Therefore it is temporarily impossible to login or register.
