This website contains information about a series of interrelated research projects on Holocaust memory led by staff from the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures at the University of Leeds. Our research is interdisciplinary, engaged and international in its scope, and our projects are run in collaboration with a range of academic and non-academic partners, including the South African Holocaust and Genocide Foundation (pictured above and left), the USC Shoah Foundation, the National Holocaust Centre and Museum, the Bergen-Belsen Memorial Site and the Anne Frank House.
Our projects involve postgraduate students who regularly lead events and undertake internships with our partner organisations in the UK, South Africa and Rwanda. These include the students funded by the AHRC through the White Rose College of the Arts and Humanities (WRoCAH) network on The Future of Holocaust Memory.
