European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI)

We are a founding member of the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI). EHRI aims to bring Holocaust-related collections and researchers together through its extensive database, networking, fellowships and international conferences and workshops.

EHRI Fellowships at The Wiener Holocaust Library

“The possibility to conduct research at the facilities of The Wiener Library made a major contribution for my research, as I was able to gather important material from all involved individuals – especially from the Jewish ghetto inmates and the occupying forces….I would like to thank the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure and The Wiener Library for giving me the possibility and the financial support to conduct research in their premises and for their openness towards my research”

Judith Vöcker, 2019 EHRI Fellow

The EHRI fellowships are intended to support and stimulate research by facilitating international access to key archives and collections related to the Holocaust as well as archival and digital humanities knowhow. 

The fellowship programme aims to encourage researchers, archivists, curators, and younger scholars, especially PhD candidates with limited resources.

Since 2016 The Wiener Holocaust Library has hosted 22 EHRI fellows from institutes in the USA, Serbia and Hungary, among others. 

Applications for the Conny Kristel Fellowship Programme 2021 are currently open. Deadline for submission: 15 March 2021.
