This month 75 years ago the KZ Auschwitz was liberated. On the 27th this will be commemorated at the Memorial and Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau. The same date was also chosen as Holocaust Memorial Day. Many EHRI-partners will organise their own events to pay special attention to this day.
Survivors of the Holocaust to testify are dwindling in number and new generations will feel further removed from the event. Therefore it is more important than ever to keep the memory and the study of the Holocaust alive. We hope that the resources and tools that EHRI has been and still is developing will play a vital role in the future of Holocaust research, commemoration and education.
One of the main resources is the EHRI Online Course in Holocaust Studies, which provides teachers, lecturers, students, and the general public as a whole with source materials, in the original languages and in English translation, and background information in order to give them an overview on recent trends in historiography.
