We are a proud member of the Second World War and Holocaust Partnership Project (SWWHPP), an incredible initiative, funded generously by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and led by Imperial War Museums.
Over the next three years, this project will create awareness around WW2 and Holocaust narratives around the UK, supporting digital and community-based events co-produced with local people and creative artists.
Follow the developments of this project on our social media, blog and newsletter.
The Holocaust and Genocide Research Partnership (HGRP) is a national research and public engagement consortium comprising of institutions at the forefront of research and learning:
- The Holocaust Survivors’ Friendship Association (Leeds & Huddersfield)
- The Wiener Holocaust Library (London)
- The Holocaust Research Institute at Royal Holloway, University of London

HGRP aims to be the leading voice in the UK for research-led public engagement, education, and heritage practice about the history and memory of the Holocaust and genocide.
By bringing together scholars, educators and cultural practitioners together into an unprecedented powerhouse of research-led advocacy and learning, it aims to ensure that public knowledge of the Holocaust and genocide is shaped by expert knowledge and survivors’ voices.
MA Holocaust and Genocide Studies
The Holocaust and Genocide Studies taught MA programme at the University of Huddersfield is set up to analyse and discuss the Holocaust and other genocides, with a particular eye to cultural representations and the impact of historic genocides on current international legislation and conflict resolution.
The course is co-taught by scholars from the History and Literature divisions. The partnership with the Holocaust Exhibition and Learning Centre represents a unique proposition to study the Holocaust in conjunction with archival and exhibition practice.
