Nobodies’ Jews: Non-national Jews between Refuge and Deportation during the 1930s and the Holocaust

Project description

A closer look at Jewish refugees during WWII

The overarching aim of the EU-funded HoloNNatJews project is to construct a contextual timeline portrait of Jewish refugees from the Nazi’s rise to power. Taking Belgium as a relevant case study, the project investigates Jewish refugees from Western Europe and Central and Eastern Europe by developing an analytical framework comprising legal, institutional, and social standpoints. Set around three research objectives and cutting across several disciplinary fields, the project will be implemented by mobilising two methodological approaches and a variety of research sources. The research data will be analysed by employing statistical software and digital humanities tools. Building a non-discriminatory future for European society depends on documenting the terrible shift from normality to Holocaust, thus preventing the reoccurrence of similar atrocities.
