Neuartiges Archiv für Holocaust-Filme - Thursday, 02.08.2018

Online article by Ruth Hutsteiner published in the science section of the ORF’s (Austrian Broadcasting Corporation’s) website

The article (“New archive for Holocaust films”) was published in the context of the project’s approval and funding by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program. It focuses on the project’s aim to contextualize both well-known and unknown film materials recorded by Allied soldiers during the liberation of Nazi concentration camps at the end of World War II. The article also highlights the consortium’s effort to set new standards for the advanced digitization of historic films and accompanying documents. Moreover, it features the project’s main goal to create a complex online platform for presenting the various materials and directly linking them to the places (e.g. today’s memorial site) where they were created.
