Remembrance Days: 27 January (International Holocaust Remembrance Day)
Over the last decades, Norway has seen a marked reinforcement of political, social and cultural consciousness towards the Holocaust. Research and education in the field has been characterized by ongoing extension of scope and scale as well as professionalization. The International Holocaust Remembrance day is marked with an annual national event including representatives of the Jewish communities and other victim groups of Nazi persecution and representatives from the Norwegian government.
