This seminar will provide an overview on current approaches and topics in Holocaust Studies, with a focus on Central Europe, especially Hungary and Poland. Issues we want to discuss during the seminar include ways of combining local and transnational history, methodological approaches to sources left behind by the persecuted as well as documents drawn up by the perpetrators and the impact of digital tools in conducting research on the Holocaust.
Participants will receive an introduction to the EHRI Portal, which offers access to information on Holocaust-related archival material held by almost two thousand archival institutions in Europe and beyond. We especially want to encourage an exchange between young scholars conducting research in and outside Central Europe. It is also an opportunity to present and discuss projects with senior scholars active in the field.
