Call for Application: ITS Research Seminar

Members of Historical, Educational and Remembrance Initiatives are invited to apply for a three-day research seminar by May 1, 2018. The seminar will take place at the ITS in Bad Arolsen, June 25 – 27, 2018. It is hosted by the ITS and the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM).

The seminar will focus on the ITS archive’s more than 30 million documents on the Holocaust, concentration camps and other places of detention, on Nazi forced labor in German cities, towns and municipalities as well as on the post-war assistance the Allies provided to displaced persons (DPs). Participants of the seminar will have the chance to get to know these holdings and to work with the digitized documents in the ITS database. They will also have the opportunity to exchange ideas and perspectives on their projects, as well as research and education potential.

The cost of participation in the seminar will be covered by the hosts and includes:

  • reimbursement for roundtrip travel costs (second-class train fare): up to EUR 250 within Germany or up to EUR 400 within Europe 
  • three nights at a hotel in Bad Arolsen
  • all meals

Please find information about the application, the contents and the organization of the seminar here.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at historical-research@its-arolsen.org.

This seminar is made possible in part by the support of Phyllis and Neil Greenblum.
