  • Center for studies of Holocaust and Religious minorities

The Center for Studies of the Holocaust and Religious Minorities has two main fields of interest: the Holocaust on the one hand and religious minorities on the other. Within these two fields of interest the Center will contribute with new research, education and information activities, exhibitions and conferences.

The Center for Studies of the Holocaust and Religious Minorities conducts research within the fields of (1) Jewish History and Antisemitism; (2) Religious Minorities; (3) Nazism, Fascism and Occupation Regimes in Europe and (4) Comparative Genocide.

Archival and Other Holdings

Established in 2004 as a unit for documentation and knowlegde, the library is a cornerstone in the HL-senter’s research and dissemination activities. The main topics in the library collection are:

  • Holocaust and other genocides
  • Religions and life stances
  • Minorities

The collection encompasses books, journals, movies, speech and sound recordings, and some private archives. We have access to international databases, e.g. Testaments to the Holocaust. The library participates in a co-operation with other Norwegian and international libraries with inter-library loan. We provide individual assistance in searching and are happy to support our users in literature and reference searches, as well as articles from other collections.
