The PARTHENOS project has been awarded €12 million over four years by the EU to support and build on the efforts of a range of EU projects in the domain of cultural heritage, digital humanities, linguistics, history and archaeology. EHRI is one of the projects that, led by its coordinator NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies, takes part in PARTHENOS. Within PARTHENOS, EHRI will be involved in communication, standardization of requirements and trans-national access.
The aim of the EHRI research guides is to create comprehensive, innovative and easy to use guides through the dispersed and fragmented archival material and to empower further research. Using innovative methods and technologies, the research guides virtually link together data from different archives in different countries, which use varying methods of archival description and digital archival systems.

EHRI (European Holocaust Research Infrastructure) invites applications for its fellowship programme (2016-2018).
The EHRI fellowships are intended to support and stimulate Holocaust research by facilitating international access to key archives and collections related to the Holocaust as well as archival and digital humanities knowhow. The fellowships intend to support researchers, archivists, curators, and younger scholars, especially PhD candidates with limited resources.
IHRA's Committee on the Holocaust, Genocide, and Crimes against
Humanity is currently seeking a researcher to compile a report on
(international) organizations working on the Holocaust, Genocide and
Crimes against Humanity, their work, their educational and communication
programs as well as an overview of the literature in which the
Holocaust is related to other genocides and crimes against Humanity.
The organisers are seeking submissions for an edited volume devoted to the intersections among Spain, World War II and the Holocaust. This collection of essays will be the first comprehensive historical and cultural study of Spain’s unique relationship to the Holocaust and Nazi genocide. The volume seeks to bring together contributions from leading scholars from the fields of history, literary studies, sociology, film, and visual arts in order to provide a long-overdue multi-faceted analysis of a significant piece of Holocaust history that still remains outside the various disciplines that engage with European fascism.
More than 2,000,000 Jews were killed by shooting during the Holocaust in several thousand mass killing sites throughout Europe and yet these killing sites remain relatively unknown. A new publication issued by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) aims to raise awareness of this centrally important aspect of the Holocaust by bringing together organizations and individuals dealing with the subject.
