The Mandel Center is looking for contributors who are qualified to write individual entries for the Encyclopedia of Camps and Ghettos. Scholars may also wish to undertake research on a site or a collection of sites and to contribute a series of entries.
There are some categories for which little research has been done. We have a special interest in hearing from anyone who might have relevant expertise in the following areas:
- Prisoner-of-war camps
- Police detention camps
- Forced labor camps for Jews in occupied countries
- “Germanization” camps for Polish children
- “Care facilities” for foreign children (Ausländerkinderpflegestätten)
- Military brothels
- Civilian internment camps under the Wehrmacht
We also need continued support from volunteers who can provide assistance in a number of areas, such as editing, cartography, translation, and/or documentary or photographic research.
To learn more, please e-mail Dr. Geoffrey Megargee, General Editor.
