The EHRI consortium consists of nineteen partners from thirteen European countries including Israel. The participating organizations (twenty in all) are research institutions, libraries, archives, museums and memorial sites. The overall EHRI (future) community however, will no doubt comprise more than a hundred cultural, scientific and educational institutions. Participants in the consortium will act as liaison to other organizations which hold Holocaust-related collections and data or are somehow active in the field. Together they will form a Holocaust research community on a world-wide scale.
