Dissemination of the Museums pilot Toolbox at an international workshop about the Shoa victims


Beatrix Lehmann of Museumsmedien participated in a very interesting event: Names of Shoah Victims: from Scattered Sources to Individual Personal Stories, an International Workshop within the Framework of the European Holocaust Research Infrastructure (EHRI).

The participants represented Memorials, Archives, Universities, Museums coming from the Netherlands, Israel, Hungary, Germany, Austria, USA, Lithuania, United Kingdom, France, Italy. The attendees were a perfect mixture of the target group for the Toolbox developed within the Museums pilot: staff of international Memorials, Museums, Archives and Universities.

In particular, the Jewish Historical Museum in Amsterdam and Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe seemed very interested in the outcome of the Toolbox for their educational work. The Europeana Space Best Practice Network is going to grow!
