EHRI and Covid-19

EHRI in an Upside-Down World. Covid-19 and Holocaust Research and Education


By Roxana Popa, Public Relations Counsellor at EHRI partner, The "Elie Wiesel" National Institute for the Study of the Holocaust In Romania, and involved in EHRI communications.

In a moment, our world turned upside-down. Caught in a whirlwind of actions, on a fast forward rhythm, we woke up in a world we no longer recognize, forced to STOP, to prioritize, to understand what our needs are, and what helps us to adapt and cope with change. First, overwhelmed by the shock of the change, we began to understand the role of health and freedom. The privilege of doing simple things without restrictions, things that not long ago might have annoyed us or seemed trivial. After that, we realized how much we miss human interaction, and how lucky we are (at least most of us) to be able to interact remotely, online. Maybe it is now that we have understood the benefits that technology brings to our lives, and we have also understood that to feed our sense and need of belonging, the world could not stop. We must go on with our lives: working, learning, and doing all the things that define our normality. Doing this differently, but continuing it.
