Mapping the Archive. The Wiener Holocaust Library’s Refugee Map

New post on the EHRI Document Blog describes the Wiener Library’s Refugee Map and gives an insight into the challenges of mapping archival material and visualising temporal and spatial movement based on the complex stories drawn from the Wiener Library’s Family Papers Collection. The Refugee Map enhances the accessibility of these micro-histories for both researchers and general audiences. The varied content presented in the map also opens a window into the everyday lives of refugees, including in their adopted new homes rather than focusing entirely on their lives before the Second World War.
