TracesOfWar needs your help! We miss photos of important sights in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and Germany. Submit your photos to input@tracesofwar.com and it will be published!
Job description:
The writing of historical articles on TracesOfWar Articles on a voluntary (unpaid) basis.

Activities:
Authors of historical articles write articles on various topics of choice that are related to the history of the Second World War. Objectivity, a good reference to the source and an easily readable language are some of the requirements we place on the articles. We expect an excellent command of the Dutch language from an author.

Tools:
A starting author is accompanied by an experienced author. In principle, we consider an author who has written three articles to be a permanent author, but he or she will also be supported by our final editors.

Selection:
To be able to assess whether someone is suitable as an author, we require a trial article upon registration. The subject is determined in consultation.

Who are we looking for:
Many of the awards on TracesOfWar do not yet have a good description. We are looking for volunteers who like to provide such descriptions via sources on the internet and from books.

What will you do:
You just have to provide the description and the source, other volunteers in the team take care of the placement and the translation.

If you also want to do other things for the website or want to place your description on it yourself, this is also possible after some training.

Please note that all work is done on a voluntary basis.

If you have any questions or would like to register, please send a message to Rik van Velzen.
Who are we looking for:
Someone who likes to write short informative pieces and process related photos of war-related sights. Think of the First and Second World War, but other wars are also possible (indicate your preference!).

What will you do:
You will work with your own material (photos), which you will find in reliable sources on the internet or in books / newspapers or with reliable information that others have sent you. You can process these in existing or new locations, also known as places of interest, on our website. That ranges from very large such as war museums or concentration camps to the smallest monuments or Stolpersteine!

At first you will be guided by more experienced editors, but if everything goes well you will soon be on your own two feet. Of course there is always the possibility of consultation and help, via e-mail, Facebook or forums.

Please note that all work is done on a voluntary basis.

If you have any questions or would like to join, please send a message to Lennard Bolijn at lennard@tracesofwar.com.
Who we are looking for::
Someone who likes to answer and process e-mails coming in from the TracesOfWar website.

What will you be doing::
You go to work within Gmail with the e-mails that come in, for all the different departments we have (Sights, People & Awards, Articles, News). What comes in are press releases of events, questions about our website or related topics ("Do you have more information about my family member?"), Feedback on our website ("There is not only a tank here, but also a cannon!") and new additions ("You do not have this person / location yet!"). In addition, many other types of mails, which you automatically find out.

For this work it is handy that you communicate smoothly by e-mail, you can get along with photo editing tools and you can at least give a reaction in Dutch and English.

In the first instance you will be helped by more experienced e-mail editors, but if everything goes well, you will soon be on your own feet. Of course there is always the possibility of help and assistance, via e-mail, Facebook or forums.

Note: all activities are performed on a voluntary basis.

If you have any questions or would like to join, please send a message to Lennard Bolijn at lennard@tracesofwar.com.
🎬 Who are we looking for:
Have you been anticipating the third series by the Band of Brothers creators for years, just like us? Have you seen all World War II related series on Netflix and other streaming platforms? On top of that, do you enjoy sharing your opinions and thoughts on movies and series with a larger audience? Then we might be looking for you!

🎬 What will you be doing:
As movie and series critic, you will discuss recent movies and series about WWII that have not yet been reviewed on our website. You might have watched it on your own accord or have received a link or copy from us.

In your reviews, you will be sharing a concise, yet gripping synopsis. In this you will emphasize historic facts, as TracesOfWar is a history website, not a movie website. Besides, you will give a thorough analysis that goes beyond just stating whether the movie was exciting or boring. Your reviews will be judged by our editors and subsequently you will post them on our website.

To judge your capabilities, we would like to receive a test review from you.

Please note: all work is on a voluntary basis.

If you have any questions or wish to apply for the job, do not hesitate to contact Kevin Prenger at k.prenger@tracesofwar.com
