Postgraduate and Family History Workshop :

We are collaborating with The Wiener Holocaust Library, who are 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.

This event offers the chance to view their temporary exhibition ‘Fate Unknown: The Search for the Missing after the Holocaust’ and hear from 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 the Senior ITS Archive Team Manager at The Wiener Holocaust Library, 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.

This is a free in person event but space is limited.
