Duration   1h

Malva Schalek was an artist who captured life in the Theresienstadt ghetto, and was deported to Auschwitz after refusing to paint the portrait of a collaborationist doctor. How did Malva use her art as a form of resistance?

When piecing together a story like this, which requires documents from archives scattered across the world, researchers and archivists can face all sorts of challenges. The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) has published Guidelines for Identifying Relevant Documentation for Holocaust Research, Education and Remembrance to help archives and researchers overcome these obstacles.

Join the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) on 23 March for the launch of a short film about a researcher's journey to uncover more about Malva's life and death, and a panel discussion about how our new guidelines can help researchers and archivists to access Holocaust-related material.
