EHRI invites applications for its first Conny Kristel Fellowship
Cut-off date: 31 December 2018

Monday 12 November 2018
EHRI announces a special call for the first Conny Kristel Fellowship. EHRI is offering a fellowship of three weeks at NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies in Amsterdam to honour the memory and legacy of Dr. Conny Kristel, former EHRI project director and senior researcher at the NIOD, who sadly passed away on 6 October 2018.

The deadline for applications is 31 December 2018 and the fellowship will have to be completed by 31 August 2019. Applicants will be notified in January 2019.

As a historian, Dr Kristel was known for her publications about the history of the persecution of the Jews, and her work about the Netherlands during the First World War. The will to fathom the origins and consequences of war violence, persecution and victimhood formed the core of all her work. As project director of EHRI, she made a significant contribution to the internationalization and innovation of Holocaust research.

This first special call is the symbolic start to a new phase of the EHRI Fellowship programme that in honour of Dr Conny Kristel will grant Holocaust researchers, archivists and digital humanists comprehensive transnational access to key collections and centres of expertise across Europe and beyond. It marks EHRI’s commitment to continue and deepen the ground-breaking work Dr Kristel envisioned, encouraged and performed.
