We publish personal testimonies in the Memory of Nations database and continue to tell these stories to the public. We work with young people in schools, organize exhibitions, cooperate with the media, communicate on social networks, publish books, magazine Stories of the 20th century and we hand over the Nation’s Memory Awards every year.
The Norwegian Center for Holocaust and Minority studies
The Norwegian Holocaust Centre and Minority Studies in Oslo has been carrying out research and education in the areas of the Holocaust and minority studies since 2001. It is an independent non-profit foundation with a comprehensive mandate to carry out research, document and disseminate knowledge of the Holocaust and other genocides, racism and anti-Semitism, gross human rights violations and the situation of minorities in the modern world. The centre is based in Vila Grande, which was the seat of Norwegian collaborator and Nazi leader Vidkun Quisling during World War II. With this symbolic act of re-appropriation, the centre transforms the image of this monumental building. Once a house of shame is now full of activities in stark contrast to his former role.
The civic Association, which was established in 2008.

The films offer testimonies of survivors, a picture of the times, relations between the Jewish and non-Jewish populations.The civic association also provides educational events for the general public. Through these activities, the association seeks to familiarize young people and the general public with Jewish culture and its history and helps to combat racism, xenophobia and anti-Semitism.
