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.

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.
