European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI)

Back to list


The European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI) is a project funded by the Research and Innovation Programme Horizon2020 of the European Union. Its mission is to support the Holocaust research community by building a digital infrastructure and facilitating human networks. More than twenty organisations – research institutions, libraries, archives, museums and memorial sites – form a core working group, but EHRI equally relies on the support of many other individuals and organisations in the broad fields of Holocaust studies and digital humanities. EHRI started its work in October 2010 with initial financial support from the European Union for four years. Thanks to the continued EU support, EHRI keeps on developing. A new ambitious four year programme has been put together that will deepen the project’s existing activities and achievements and explore new avenues of research from 2015 to 2019. EHRI is devoted to building a Holocaust research infrastructure that is sustained by its network and will have a right of existence on its own accord.
