On 9 July 2013, Angelika Menne-Haritz who is the APEx Scientific Coordinator gave a presentation at the conference "Public History of the Holocaust - Historical research in the digital age".

The event was co-organised by the projects DARIAH, EHRI and TextGrid and took place at the Jewish Museum in Berlin. In her presentation Angelika Menne-Haritz emphasised the importance of trustworthiness and reliability of especially archival information presented on the Internet and illustrated some professional strategies to ensure these with the example of the Archives Portal Europe.

Users can search for 24 338 798 descriptive units and 40 290 342 digital objects at once. The Archives Portal Europe is available in 23 languages and contains, besides the descriptions of archival materials, service information about the archives themselves.
