Research into the Holocaust faces particular challenges due to the diversity and dispersal of its sources. The EHRI Portal, one of the main outputs of the EHRI project, is a platform for contextualising and integrating metadata about Holocaust-related archival material. In this work we undertake to deliver the EHRI Portal’s archival metadata as Linked Open Data in order to explore the benefits that this model can provide to the field in terms of decentralised data access and integration with the wider Semantic Web. We describe the process of transforming the existing data to a Knowledge Graph aligned with the new ICA conceptual model, Records in Contexts (RiC). As part of this process we describe the challenges and limitations of this alignment, along with future developments that could result in a better fit with our use-case. We envision this work as the first step in delivering Holocaust data to the Semantic Web, allowing partner institutions to evaluate its capabilities and potentially adopt it for their own solutions, making the field more interconnected.
