About Us - With the Holocaust as a Starting Point

The Living History Forum is a Swedish public authority commissioned to work with issues related to tolerance, democracy and human rights, using the Holocaust and other crimes against humanity as its starting point.

This major challenge is our specific mission. The past and the present are continuously present in everything we do. With these perspectives, our goal is to teach about historic patterns. Our wish is to equip people with knowledge for the future; our goal is to work for everyone’s equal value.

Through our continuous contacts with teachers and other experts within education, we develop methods and tools for reaching our key target group: young people.

Through our excellent cooperation with researchers and scholars, with people involved in education, voluntary organizations and other stakeholders, we pass on important knowledge, adapted for our main target group, young people. In order to give ourselves – and others – better opportunities to interpret the age we live in, we also carry out attitude surveys. These surveys are essential for our ability to overview what efforts we should go in for.
