Holocaust and Genocide Studies

Culture and Catastrophe: a German and Jewish History

The programme in Holocaust and Genocide Studies is unique in the Netherlands. The courses are provided by the new Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at the University of Amsterdam and the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, established in the Netherlands Institute for War Documentation.

The curriculum is organised in an interdisciplinary manner: 20th-century genocides are examined from the vantage point of different disciplines. Holocaust and Genocide Studies takes a content-based approach to the phenomenon of genocide.
