First international seminar of the NWO project The Holocaust in “the Provinces”: Local Dynamics in the Nazi-Occupied Netherlands (1925-1950)

The Holocaust is one of the best researched major episodes of mass destruction in modern Western history.

EHRI Podcast Series For the Living and the Dead. Traces of the Holocaust

New Episodes EHRI Podcast: For the Living and the Dead. Traces of the Holocaust


On 5th October 2023, EHRI released the first episode of its second EHRI podcast season, A Sunflower for Simon. The EHRI Podcast For the Living and the Dead. Traces of the Holocaust was launched in September 2022 and highlights personal stories from the Holocaust through objects, now found in museums or (personal and private) archives across Europe and beyond. Researchers and archivists from across the EHRI network highlight the importance of documenting the Holocaust through objects and the need to protect and care for these objects.

In the second season, we hear about sunflowers sent to Simon Wiesenthal;  tefillin prayer cubes that belonged to a Polish Jewish family who survived in Siberia; a paper heart with messages of gratitude in Sweden; a letter with a desperate call for help from Jews imprisoned in the Kaufering complex; a seal made out of linoleum to forge life-saving documents in Hungary; and a tiny notebook containing notes of a 12-year old Jewish girl from Lithuania who lost almost all of her family. Listen to the new season of For the Living and the Dead. Traces of the Holocaust.
