Holocaust Education, Remembrance, and Research in Norway

Overview

Norway became a member of IHRA (formerly the ITF) in 2003 and served as Chair in 2009.

The last two decades have represented a shift of political, social and cultural consciousness towards the Holocaust in Norway. This has been reflected through a diversity of educational, research and remembrance activities throughout the country – first and foremost at the Centre for Studies of Holocaust and Religious Minorities, the Falstad Centre, The Archive Foundation, The North Sea Traffic Museum and the Jewish Museums of Oslo and Trondheim.
