A recent article about the digital monument on the “ELTE Néprajz blog”

Recently, a doctoral candidate of the Eötvös Loránd University (ELTE), Lilla Leichter – who also has presented on the topic of the Roma Holocaust at our conference in last June, and also wrote an article to this blog – interviewed two researchers, Dóra Pataricza PhD and Mercédesz Czimbalmos PhD about their work on and with the digital monument. The article was written in Hungarian on the blog of ELTE’s Institute for Ethnograpgy and Folklore (ELTE Néprajz blog), with its main focus on the idea of the digital monument, its benefits and possible limitations, the work our researchers do, and the challenges they face. Dóra and Mercédesz told about the accessible and open nature of the monument and the fact that it is easy to update it and correct information on it. They also addressed the difficulties when trying to reach the relevant crowds with it. Moreover, they discussed their personal connections to the topic, questions of funding, and to an extent, their future plans in research.

We are very pleased, that a well-known Hungarian university and its researchers found this project and the initiative itself interesting and important enough to write about it, and we would like to thank them for the opportunity!
