Holocaust and Genocide Studies Scholarly Journal

The major forum for scholarship on the Holocaust and other genocides, Holocaust and Genocide Studies is an international journal featuring research articles, interpretive essays, book reviews, a comprehensive bibliography of recently published relevant works in the social sciences and humanties, and an annual list of major research centers specializing in Holocaust studies.

Articles compel readers to:

  • Confront many aspects of human behavior

  • Contemplate major moral issues

  • Consider the role of sciences and technology in human affairs

  • Reconsider important features of political and social organization

With content from the disciplines of history, literature, economics, religious studies, anthropology, political science, sociology, and others, Holocaust and Genocide Studies also prints work on other genocides and near-genocidal episodes. The journal is published three times a year in cooperation with Oxford University Press.

The US Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Jack, Joseph, and Morton Mandel Center’s mission is to ensure the long-term growth and vitality of Holocaust Studies. To do that, it is essential to provide opportunities for new generations of scholars. The vitality and the integrity of Holocaust Studies requires openness, independence, and free inquiry so that new ideas are generated and tested through peer review and public debate. The opinions of scholars expressed before, during the course of, or after their activities with the Mandel Center are their own and do not represent and are not endorsed by the Museum or its Mandel Center.
