Early Attempts at the Historical Documentation of the Holocaust
Budapest, 27.-28. November 2012, Holocaust Memorial Centre (Holokauszt Emlékközpont, www.hdke.hu)
International workshop within the framework of the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI)
The EHRI workshop, which aimed to reconstruct the activities of the Jewish post-war documentation projects and to place them into a comparative context, was a vivid illustration that the history of archival collections can be anything but boring.
We are very pleased to announce that EHRI will be welcoming 2013 with a brand new website. Now that the project is halfway through, we thought the website needed a more informative and attractive design that was better suited to the current content.
Behind the scenes of EHRI a team of professionals is working hard to develop what is going to be EHRI’s main achievement: an online portal that will give access to now dispersed Holocaust resources and a Virtual Research Environment that will encourage advanced and collaborative research.
