"An object from the Holocaust is not only a physical entity; it carries within the suffering of those who owned it beyond the historical events of that period of time.

One of the most important outcomes of the EHRI project will be an online portal offering researchers and the interested public access to in-depth information on Holocaust related archives and documentation.

Reto Speck (KCL and NIOD) is co-ordinating the development of the EHRI portal; here he provides an overview of its aims and progress.
