Researching Nazi Persecution, Forced Labour and Displaced Persons

Call for Applications

As part of a broader strategy to enable and improve access to the entire digital collections, the Arolsen Archives and the Vienna Wiesenthal Institute for Holocaust Studies (VWI) are co-organising an international three-day research seminar for scholars from Austria and neighbouring countries, especially from East Central and Southeastern Europe. The event will take place at the VWI in Vienna from 6 November through 8 November 2019. At its core, the seminar will enable participants to carry out their own research in the digital collections of the Arolsen Archives through a recently established “remote access” solution. Competent staff on site will provide guidance in exploring the depths of the digital archive.

Interested candidates from Austria and neighbouring countries, especially from East Central and Southeastern Europe, are encouraged to send their application via e-mail to requests-rs@arolsen-archives.org. Applications should consist of a short letter of motivation, a brief biographical note, and an overview of the project for which you intend to explore the digital collections of the Arolsen Archives (1-2 pages in total). The deadline for applications is 25 September 2019. Participants will be chosen and notified by 30 September 2019.
