  • Laura Fontana
This workshop is part of a wider project named EHRI European Holocaust Research Infrastructure which was launched in November 2010 in Brussels thanks to the financial contribution of the European Union. EHRI's main objective is to support the Holocaust research community by opening up a portal that will give online access to scattered sources relating to the Holocaust, and by encouraging collaborative research through the development of new tools. In order to achieve this by 2014, twenty institutions – including research institutes, libraries, archives, museums and memorial sites - from thirteen countries will join their forces and work together within a special consortium. The Mémorial de la Shoah is a member of this consortium.Involved at several levels, the Shoah Memorial organize June 2, 2014 apresentation of the project and the opportunities it offers to researchers.
