Vacancy: International Tracing Service


The International Tracing Service in Bad Arolsen, Germany, is seeking a Personal Assistant to the Director. The deadline for applications is 27 January 2017 and the full job description is available on the ITS website.

The International Tracing Service (ITS) is an archive and a center for documenting National Socialist persecution and the liberated survivors. Former victims of Nazism and their families receive information regarding their incarceration, forced labor and post-war Allied assistance. The more than 30 million documents in the ITS archives also provide the basis for research and education. In order to fulfill these tasks, the ITS cooperates internationally with memorial sites, archives and research institutions. The ITS commemorates the victims of the Holocaust as well as National Socialist crimes, thus contributing towards a culture of remembrance. As of 2013 the original documents in the ITS archives are included on the UNESCO “Memory of the World” registry.

The ITS is an international organization funded by the German Federal Government and governed by an international Commission consisting of representatives from 11 member states (Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Poland, the United Kingdom and the United States of America). The ITS is financed with the budget of the German Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media. Its institutional partner is the German Federal Archive.
