WORKSHOPS 

Archival traces of Jewish history and the Holocaust in the Czech Republic


Prague, March 30 - 31, 2015The workshop aims to recapitulate and evaluate the state of archival documentation of Jewish
history and of the Holocaust in the Czech Republic and to discuss the cooperation and synergies
with the ongoing international projects. It will engage professionals from regional and central
archives, from specialised Jewish and Holocaust archives and from European research
infrastructures, as well as historians, from the Czech Republic and from abroad. The workshop will
disseminate knowledge about the international research infrastructures and will engage Czech
archivists in an open discussion about the best ways of cooperation.

The workshop is a part of three inter-connected archival research projects implemented by the
Jewish Museum in Prague:

  • European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI) which builds an extensive portal integrating data sets about Holocaust-related collections in Europe (www.ehri-project.eu)
  • Yerusha project by the Rothschild Foundation which conducts a survey of collections related to Jewish history (www.yerusha.eu)
  • ​Frontier of Memory. Documentation of names and fates of Holocaust victims from Sudetenland, funded by the Claims Conference (www.claimscon.org)

The following sessions and/or topics are anticipated:

Holocaust in the Czech Republic in the connection to the archival science
