Research and development

Access to current research is a prerequisite for the museum to be able to interpret, analyse and problematise the Holocaust.

New and up-to-date knowledge should also be the foundation for exhibitions, programmes and educational activities. Key areas for research include in-depth perspectives on the historical context of the Holocaust, the evolving collection and how the organisation can be developed. Research should also be integral to collecting, including by identifying which material it is important to collect and by contributing to discussions of ethical issues.


The Swedish Holocaust Museum will collect artefacts, documents and other material that illuminate the Holocaust in a historical context.
