EHRI proposal favourably evaluated by the Commission
The EU Research and Innovation programme Horizon 2020 has selected EHRI for further funding. This means that after the presentation in March 2015 of the results of the first phase of the project, EHRI will continue to sustain and expand the Holocaust research infrastructure and community, building on the achievements of the past four years.
On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the end of
World War II and of the liberation of the camps by the Allies,
EHRI partner, the Shoah Memorial is holding an exceptional exhibition
reviewing the Nazi crime scenes data filmed by Soviet
German Studies Institute Amsterdam, Jena Center 20th Century History,
Center for Holocaust Studies at the Institute of Contemporary History,
Munich, NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies
The aim of the conference is to thoroughly review the stereotypical
'bystander' and to think beyond the existing scholarly approaches in
Holocaust historiography. It is intended to encourage the formulation of
innovative concepts, which might enable historians to consider hitherto
overlooked or marginalized aspects of historical reality or to view
familiar processes from entirely new angles.
