The European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI) invites people working in micro-archives or similar collection-holding institutions to apply for a seminar organised by the Arolsen Archives - International Center on Nazi Persecution.

Citizen Science in the Archival Domain - A Hands-On Seminar on Implementing Crowdsourcing Projects for Micro-Archives

We are pleased to announce the final event in the series of seminars offered by the EHRI-3 project, hosted by the Arolsen Archives, the leading archival institution in the field of Nazi persecution. This hands-on seminar is aimed at individuals or institutions that hold microarchival collections related to the history of the Holocaust and/or Nazi persecution and are interested in learning more about the opportunities of crowdsourcing for their archival projects.

What to expect from the seminar:
- Discussion of participants’ archival projects
- Theoretical and practical sessions on developing and maintaining citizen science projects on Zooniverse
- Community building and digitization opportunities in the aftermath of the event
- Excellent networking opportunities
- An introduction to EHRI's services, activities, and developments
- Guided tours through the Arolsen Archives and Bad Arolsen

The seminar will be held in English. Please note that since participants will be dealing with sources and collections written in German, solid comprehensive skills in German are mandatory.

EHRI will cover travel expenses and accommodation.

Please include the following in your application:
- A completed application form
- A letter of motivation (maximum 500 words)
- A curriculum vitae (maximum 2 pages)

Please submit the completed application material as a single PDF or DOC file, and any accompanying questions, by 31 August 2024 to the email address
