Transnational Meets Local
Making Holocaust Research Projects and Infrastructures Sustainable by Using Digital Archives, Electronic Repositories, and Internet Platforms on Local and Regional Levels
19-20 November 2018
Location: Vienna Wiesenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies, Vienna, Austria
The workshop “Transnational Meets Local” is being organised by EHRI Partner the Vienna Wiesenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies, within the framework of the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI) project, supported by the European Commission.
This two-day workshop invites stakeholders who maintain digital platforms, repositories, and databases, or have developed internet-based curricula, exhibitions, and presentations on specific research projects and/or case-studies in Holocaust Studies. Focussing on current questions of digital archival collections in Central Europe, the aim of the workshop will be to discuss and develop policies and procedures on organisational and legal levels concerning the transnationalisation of Holocaust research networks and archives. The workshop is directed at a wider public, bringing local approaches and regional aspects of current usages of Holocaust-related sources to the fore. The linkage of these local approaches to other projects from Central Europe will enable the creation of a network of and for these initiatives, transcending the ethnic, linguistic, and/or national borders which until now have represented an obstacle in opening spaces for innovative approaches.
Deadline for Applications: 1 September 2018
Call for Papers For a One-Day Conference in Warsaw
Research and Preservation of the Secret Archive of the Warsaw Ghetto
6 December 2018
Location: Jewish Historical Institute, Warsaw, Poland
We would like to invite you to a one-day conference on Research and Preservation of the Secret Archive of the Warsaw Ghetto, to be held at the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw, on 6 December 2018. The conference will take place with the participation of archives, archivists and Holocaust-centered institutions in Poland.
The main theme of the conference is Oneg Shabbat and the Underground Archive of the Warsaw Ghetto. This collection is one of the most important testimonies about the Holocaust of Polish Jews – not only due to the diversity and documentary value of the collected materials. More than anything, it is a record of the Holocaust as seen by its victims. It consists of the documents gathered by the Oneg Shabbat, a group of people, founded by Emanuel Ringelblum, who documented the life and death of the Warsaw Ghetto.
Deadline for submission: 1 September 2018 (EXTENDED DEADLINE)
