Recovery & Repair: Supporting Jewish Family Histories of the Holocaust in Britain
November 23, 2022 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
This in-person event is taking place at Holocaust Centre North in Huddersfield on 23 November 2022.
The Wiener Holocaust Library is home to the UK’s International Tracing Service (ITS) Digital Archive, which holds millions of documents related to the Holocaust and Nazi era. The archive preserves the shared past of victims and survivors of the Holocaust and helps support family research of Nazi persecution. Our free one-day event offers the chance to view our temporary exhibition ‘Fate Unknown: The Search for the Missing after the Holocaust’, as well as the opportunity to hear from its curators and ITS Digital Archive researchers to learn more about this remarkable collection and how it can be used to help in family research and academic work.
We welcome historians, archivists, family historians, heritage practitioners, and anyone interested in Jewish and Holocaust history and its aftermath.
This workshop will help you take the first steps in conducting your own research using the ITS Digital Archive, including how to make use of sources freely available online.
Join our Senior ITS Archive Team Manager, Elise Bath as she explains how the archive can be used to help in family research and academic work. Holocaust Centre North’s Archivist, Hari Jonkers, will also showcase examples of how the ITS archive can support those searching for information about survivors who resettled in the North of England. All welcome.
