European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI)
The European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI) project aims to create a sustainable world-class Holocaust Research Infrastructure of European dimensions, that will bring together virtual resources from dispersed archives.
EHRI is a €7m EU-funded project that aims to provide open access to Holocaust material such as documents, objects, photos, film and art. It involves 20 partner organisations in 13 countries, making it the most important European research project about the Holocaust to date.
CeRch will lead on the overall development of EHRI's digital research infrastructure, and on the strategic work packages on researcher requirements and the technical development of a Virtual Research Environment (VRE), which will offer online access to the archives.
EHRI will be an example and forerunner for digital research in a wide range of new disciplines in historical research and archival practices. The project is coordinated by NIOD, the Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide studies in Amsterdam.
