International Campaign #ProtectTheFacts | Honouring the Past. Safeguarding the Future

22/04/2021

EHRI Supports the #ProtectTheFacts Campaign

Over 75 years after the end of the Second World War, Holocaust memory is under threat. Holocaust distortion is on the rise and is eroding our understanding of historical truth. Holocaust distortion benefits from a general lack of awareness. It doesn’t stop at national borders, nor is it found only in one language. International cooperation is essential to countering it.

ProtectTheFacts is an international initiative of the European Commission, the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), the United Nations, and UNESCO, who have joined forces to raise awareness of Holocaust distortion – both how to recognise it and how to counter it.

Micro-Archive

EHRI Is Looking for Micro-Archives

12/04/2021

We invite you to become part of the EHRI network by integrating your micro-archival collection into our portal. Together, we can develop and apply strategies to safeguard your collection(s) for future generations and make them accessible to researchers and the public at large.

The sources that provide information on the Holocaust are diverse and geographically dispersed. Combined, all these collections – regardless of their scope and accessibility – are necessary to form a more complete picture. Whether a diary is located in a box in the attic of a small initiative or in the vast archives of an established institution is irrelevant: all sorts of objects and documents shed light not only on the Holocaust at large, but also on single events and personal stories.
