Project Partners

In addition to the project's close collaboration with the Network for Nazism- and Holocaust Studies, NNHS, we have a number of other collaboration partners and contributors. If you or your company, organization etc. would like to be part of the project, contact us and have a good chat. We are constantly looking for partners to spread the project.


The project 'The Danish Jews in Theresienstadt', which belongs to the association Network for Nazism and Holocaust Studies, which is an association under the University of Southern Denmark, has received support from the Czech Embassy in Copenhagen


During the preparation of the fieldwork in Terezín, Památnik Terezín provided premises and internet. Likewise, they provided museums and their own historians for our fieldwork.

Network for Nazism and Holocaust Studies

The project 'The Danish Jews in Theresienstadt' entered into a collaboration earlier this year, 2018. The collaboration covers the project's website and future activities.


For the establishment of the versions of our website in German, Czech, Swedish and English, we have received a generous donation from the foundation 'Arcadia - a Charitable Fund of Lisbet Rausing & Peter Baldwin' (London).
