At this meeting, the outgoing Minister of the Interior Kajsa Ollongren made an important commitment regarding the future European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) of the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI). Ollongren said that “The Netherlands is pleased to announce that we intend to house the headquarters of the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI) in the Netherlands and contribute financially to the establishment of the EHRI.”
DANS & EHRI
DANS participates in the European project EHRI, which is led by the KNAW-NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust and Genocide Studies. The main goal of EHRI is to make the collections about the Holocaust distributed in different countries accessible through one portal, and thus to support scientific research on the Holocaust. It also lays the foundation for the necessary legal, financial and strategic work that will transform EHRI from a project to a permanent organization, an ERIC.
