Welcome to the Holocaust Research Group

The goal of the Holocaust Research Group (HRG) is to bring together scholars and students interested in the study of the Holocaust and to create a forum for intellectual exchange for its members and for our guests from outside the University community. The HRG will encourage its members to build and to pursue joint research projects and to seek collaboration with researchers both in Canada, and abroad. HRG  is an interdisciplinary community of scholars that includes historians, political scientists and sociologists. In addition to regular Faculty, the HRG welcomes student participants, undergraduates, graduates and postgraduates who will be able not only to present their research but also to become involved in the ongoing research projects of the members of the Group.

HRG organizes, on a monthly basis, open seminars and invites scholars from outside the university community. Our mandate includes also the organization on campus of the University of Ottawa of learned meetings and conferences.
