Today we will talk about the Master's program of the politics of memory, the Holocaust and genocides.


The Master's program "Analysis and expert analysis of international processes" was opened in 2020. This is the first and only educational program in the post-Soviet space for the comprehensive study of the culture of remembrance of the Holocaust and genocides.

According to Dr. Ilya Altman, Director of the International Center for the History of the Holocaust and Genocides of RSUH, the topic of the Holocaust has two sides. The first is an unprecedented attempt to destroy an entire nation. The second is its universality (as early as World War II, the Nazis used those methods in relation to other categories of victims).

The program is implemented by the International Center for the History of the Holocaust and Genocides of RSUH, headed by Professor Ilya Altman, and the Center for Judaic and Biblical Studies, led by Professor Leonid Katsis.

The program covers a wide range of issues: from the socio-political analysis of contemporary international relations to the study of the policy of remembrance of the Holocaust and genocides in individual countries.

The program involves both individual project work of students and their involvement in research activities at the Center for the History of the Holocaust and Genocides of RSUH and the Center "Holocaust".

Undergraduates will have an opportunity to participate in seminars, internships and conferences, including those held abroad.

Students can apply for the Lemkin scholarship and intern at the Museum-Institute of the Armenian Genocide (Yerevan).
