Leading Nazi Hermann Göring was instrumental to Hitler's reign of terror, but research suggests his brother Albert saved the lives of dozens of Jews.

decide if Albert Göring was "not a Jew" or not "not a Jew" — that should be interesting

Reorganizing a vast Archive: ITS - SPIEGEL ONLINE

Reorganizing a vast Archive: ITS - SPIEGEL ONLINE | oAnth's day by day interests - via its scoop.it contacts | Scoop.it

By David Crossland in Bad Arolsen, Germany

 

Global Web of Memory

Reorganizing the database is one of the tasks of Susanne Urban, the ITS head of research, who joined the archive in 2009 after working in Yad Vashem, Israel's official memorial to the Holocaust. She says she expects the archive to reveal a plethora of "mosaic stones" to complete the picture of the genocide rather than alter it.

"Here you keep getting confronted with the global aspect of the Holocaust and survival, you see how it started in Germany, spread across Europe and with the documents about the survivors we see how a web of memory has spread across the whole world. Here you get an overview over everything. What makes it so harrowing is that you don't just get one aspect, you get them all. You sense this monolith that was built of pain and sorrow."

The work may be fascinating, but it can also be exhausting and saddening. Urban has only two research assistants on temporary contracts, which she says isn't enough.

La copie des archives ITS numérisée a été livrée aux Archives Nationales il y a plus d'un an mais n'est à ma connaissance toujours pas accessible aux chercheurs français.
