The International Institute for Holocaust Research was established in 1993. Since its inception the goal of the Institute has been to allow for the steady increase in the scope of worldwide scholarly research on the Holocaust and Holocaust related topics. The Institute is active in the development and coordination of International research; the planning and undertaking of scholarly projects; the organization of symposia and conferences; the fostering of cooperative projects among research institutions; the support of young scholars who research the Holocaust; and the publishing of analytical studies, conference proceedings, documents and monographs on the Holocaust.
In its desire to support young scholars, the International Institute for Holocaust Research is hosting a Research Seminar for PhD students who are writing a dissertation on some aspect of the Holocaust including its antecedents and aftermath. These seminars provide the students the opportunity to conduct research in the Yad Vashem Archives for two weeks, to meet with the scholars of the Institute. Yad Vashem pays for the roundtrip economy-class flight and provides hotel for 13 nights.
The student must be enrolled in a college or university PhD program (outside of Israel) in which a thesis/dissertation will be submitted. The thesis topic must deal with some aspect of the Holocaust, including its antecedents and aftermath. The topic of the dissertation must have been already approved.
The length of the seminar is two weeks, beginning on Sunday, July 16 through Thursday, July 27, 2023. The recipient is required to be in attendance each day (9:00-17:00, Sunday – Thursday - totaling 10 days) to conduct research at Yad Vashem. During the two weeks, the participants will meet together as a group and with Yad Vashem scholars to discuss their projects in general and their research goals while at Yad Vashem.
The International Institute for Holocaust Research will provide a roundtrip airline ticket to and from Israel. Hotel lodging will be arranged by the institute, arriving Saturday, July 15, leaving Friday, July 28. A recipient may extend one’s stay at his/her own expense, in accordance with their tourist visa regulations.
