The What, Why and How of the EHRI Portal: A Short Video and Portal Manual Explain
The EHRI Online Portal allows you to explore information about Holocaust-related institutions and their collections across Europe and beyond. It is one of the main achievements of the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI) project, and it seeks to overcome one of the hallmark challenges of Holocaust research: the fragmentation and wide geographic dispersal of archival sources documenting the event. By integrating and interconnecting information on tens of thousands of archival sources physically held in hundreds of institutions, the EHRI portal is an invaluable resource for anybody interested in the Holocaust, and enables new transnational and comparative approaches to research.
To enable you to make best use of the Portal, we have made a short video which offers an introduction to the Portal and explains the background that has led to its development, in just under three minutes.
The video is part of the much more elaborate Portal Manual. This manual provides you with concise information about the content, structure and functionality of the EHRI Portal, as well as with step-by-step instructions and invaluable tips on how to search and explore its content.
We naturally hope that you will find the information of the video and manual helpful. If you have suggestions for improvements, require further help when using the Portal, or, indeed, have any other question about the EHRI Project, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
