The European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI) is an international infrastructure securing Holocaust research, commemoration and education on a trans-national level. EHRI-UK is the national node representing the United Kingdom within this international research consortium.
EHRI-UK will seek to ensure the long-term sustainability of Holocaust research within the UK and beyond by:
- representing institutions within the UK (and Crown Dependencies) which contain materials related to Holocaust Studies to create a strong research consortium;
- connecting resources through a state-of-the-art digital infrastructure;
- developing innovative digital research tools;
- offering fellowships and training opportunities for researchers, archivists, and heritage professionals.
EHRI’s impact is primarily scientific, however, the infrastructure also advances a wider social and political agenda. The recent rise of antisemitism, xenophobia and aggressive nationalisms in Europe and beyond demonstrate that Holocaust research is never a purely academic concern, but a prerequisite for open and non-discriminatory societies across Europe and beyond.
