Floriane Azouley: The Bad Arolsen Archives & Holocaust Research
Sunday, December 05, 2021, 1:00 PM until 3:15 PM
Registration is not Required
The Arolsen Archives are an international center on Nazi persecution with the world’s most comprehensive archive on the victims and survivors of National Socialism. The collection has information on about 17.5 million people and belongs to UNESCO’s Memory of the World. It contains documents on the various victim groups targeted by the Nazi regime and is an important source of knowledge for society today.
Floriane Azoulay is the current Director of the Arolsen Archives. A French human rights expert, she was appointed head of the institution by the International Commission (IC) of the Arolsen Archives in 2016. In the past five years of her tenure, she has repositioned the institution, raised its public profile, and implemented digitization throughout the organization.
A special focus of her work lies on exploring the synergies between the historical significance of the archival collection and its value for society today. Previously, Floriane Azoulay served as Head of the Tolerance and Non-Discrimination Department at the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) – an intergovernmental organization with 57 participating states.
Floriane Azoulay has a Master’s degree in Social Sciences from the EHESS in Paris, a Master’s degree in Management from ESCP Europe, and a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from the University of Paris-La Sorbonne.
