Collection of Holocaust memories

On behalf of the Swedish government The Living History Forum commenced a nationwide collection of Holocaust memories related to Sweden.

The aim was to create a source of knowledge for the new Swedish Holocaust Museum in Stockholm. The museum arranged its first public events in June 2022. 

We were mainly looking for unknown and unique testimonies, correspondence, diaries, personal stories, photographs or objects and artifacts. Material concerning persons or groups with experience of propaganda, oppression, terror or persecution during the Nazi period 1933–1945.

The collected material was handed over to National History Museums and incorporated into the collections of the Swedish Holocaust Museum. The material will form the basis for future public activities and be made available for research.
