Why we work with the Holocaust scholars & researchers

Holocaust research uncovers the facts and makes remembrance possible. The IHRA safeguards the record by supporting initiatives that advance the field, whether through the IHRA’s Academic Working Group (AWG), IHRA Projects, or the IHRA Grant Program.

Recommendations on Archival Access

This key resource brings the world one step closer to open access to Holocaust collections. These Recommendations:

  1. Identify risks to archives
  2. Provide solutions to those risks, including working transnationally to find solutions
  3. Implement good practices to state archives and other archival entities regarding Holocaust-related documentation
  4. Remove legal obstacles, including encouraging the implementation of Recital 158 of the GDPR in national law
  5. Engage in post-project sustainable attention and action to ensure access to archives within IHRA Member Countries and beyond
