In all their areas of responsibility the staff members of the International Tracing Service (ITS) work together with their network partners – on national and international levels. In particular the Archive Branch and the Research and Education Branch have been involved in cooperational activities with this ever-growing network: to facilitate world-wide access to the documents and to raise awareness of the potential of this unique and significant collection.
Through working together on the international EHRI-project and in cooperative efforts with the Copyholders, the Archive Branch is involved in regular exchange with different partners. Here, the NIOD Instituut voor Oorlogs-, Holocaust- en Genocidestudies (Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies) in Amsterdam must be singled out. Active involvement in the Deutsche Archivtag (German Archivists Conference), as well as in seminars of the Association of German Archivists serves to strengthen academic exchange, further professional training and promote the ITS Archive in the world of archival experts.
Information and Tracing
Since the early postwar years the cooperation between the ITS and the national tracing services of the Red Cross and the Red Crescent Moon has proven highly successful. Information exchange between the partners follows smoothly and quickly in the interest of the people sending inquiries.
Research and Education
Through organizing exhibits, lectures and workshops, as well as events with memorial sites and museums, the Research and Education Branch is involved in intense, project-oriented co-operational activities with numerous network partners. The "current events“ page provides information about past, current, and upcoming projects with these partners. Among others, special mention must be made of the cooperation with the Anne Frank Educational Institute, the Fritz Bauer Institute, the Concentration Camp Memorial Site Mauthausen, the Central Council of German Sinti and Roma, the Max Mannheimer Study Center as well as the participation in the biennial conference Lessons & Legacies of the Holocaust.
