The program

The program’s mission is to support outstanding, cutting-edge research by individuals on the history and aftermath of the Holocaust and on the social and political transmission of memory of the Holocaust. Because there is no lack of research on such matters, they are in this call explicitly looking for applications with innovative approaches that relate to present-day challenges regarding the politics of memory and democracy. They are also interested in projects that deal with the methods and practices for educating and imparting knowledge about history in the digital age.

About the Foundation

Within various program areas, the Alfred Landecker Foundation funds projects and efforts that raise awareness of the causes of the Holocaust and its consequences, that keep the memory of victims alive, and that help safeguard the democratic values of a peaceful and united Europe. With a view to the present and to the future, the program will serve to strengthen these values as well as the inviolable dignity of the individual by establishing an academic network of Alfred Landecker lecturers and their research projects.

Application details

The call for applications is open to applicants regardless of their current place of residence and their country of origin. To apply, a binding acceptance letter from a European or Israeli university is required.

The host university will be provided with up to 100,000 euros annually to cover the salary of the grantee and their personal research budget. Alfred Landecker lecturers are employed directly at their respective host university.
