The Norwegian Holocaust Center is a poignant institution dedicated to preserving the memory of the Holocaust and educating the public about its profound impact. Established in 2001, the center serves as a hub for research, documentation, and commemoration of the Holocaust in Norway and beyond.

At the heart of the center’s mission is the recognition and remembrance of the atrocities committed during the Holocaust, including the persecution and genocide of six million Jews and millions of others by the Nazi regime. Through exhibitions, educational programs, and outreach initiatives, the center strives to honor the memory of the victims and ensure that their stories are never forgotten.

The center is situated in Villa Grande, and holds a profound significance in Norway’s historical narrative. Villa Grande was once the residence of Vidkun Quisling, the notorious collaborator with Nazi Germany during World War II.
