Collection of Holocaust memories

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

The aim is to create a source of knowledge for the new Swedish Holocaust Museum which will open in Stockholm. The museum will be arranging its first public events in June 2022. 

Mainly we are 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 will be handed over to National History Museums and incorporated into the collections that the Swedish Holocaust Museum will manage. The material will also form the basis for future public activities and be made available for research.
