The International Institute for Holocaust Research hosts annually different kinds of scholarly workshops which aim to develop research discourse on specific themes. There are three main kinds of workshops organized by the Institute:
The Annual Summer Workshop for Scholars
The Annual Summer Workshop for senior and new scholars has been conducted by the by the International Institute for Holocaust Research since 2008. The workshop invites researchers from around the world to come together and discuss and give presentations on new research topics.
The International Workshop Exchange Program with Institutes and Universities
The International Institute for Holocaust Research organizes in collaboration with universities and research institutes international exchange workshops. As part of this program, the Research Institute has organized since 1999 an annual PhD candidates’ workshop, whose purpose is to give young Israeli researchers the opportunity to present their research findings to a group of peers from another country. These workshops allow the participants to utilize the academic facilities in the host country, as well as to make valuable and lasting contacts for their future academic endeavors.
Academic Workshops convened on Specific Topics
The Research institute organizes workshops on specific understudied topics such as the Church during the Holocaust and Deportation Train Routes.
Included in this group of workshops are those organized by the different Research Centers operating within the Institute. These workshops focus on specific topics relevant to the Center’s activity, such the Holocaust in Germany, Poland, USSR, and the Aftermath.
