EHRI partner The Vienna Wiesenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies (VWI) and the United States Holocaust

A new tool for researchers is now available on the website of the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure: EHRI’s national reports. The national reports are first and foremost a tool in the identification and investigation work of EHRI. Because the field of Holocaust studies relies on a huge variety of archives, one of EHRI’s most important tasks is to create an inventory of Holocaust-related archival institutions and collections in order to share information about them and help provide access to the research community. The 47 reports provide EHRI’s identification work with a structured framework.
On Friday 22 March, US President Barack Obama visited EHRI partner Yad Vashem. He visited the Hall of Names, the Museum of Holocaust Art, participated in a memorial ceremony in the Hall of Remembrance, and visited the Children’s Memorial, before signing the Yad Vashem Guest Book.
