Short presentation

My research deals with the Holocaust, Jewish history, antisemitism, and Jewish history within a Swedish, European and American context. I am particularly interested in academic and intellectual reactions to the Holocaust and Nazism but also more broadly in the process whereby the past is interpreted in political contexts, today and historically. My current project deals with Swedish and Swedish-Jewish intellectual reactions to Italian fascism and German Nazism, from 1922 to 1945.

Keywords: fascism antisemitism historiography jewish history holocaust history nazism history and memory
