Welcome to the United Nations. It's your world.

Discussion Paper Series

The Holocaust and the United Nations outreach programme publishes a regular series of discussion papers written by leading scholars in the field of Holocaust and genocide studies. The series seeks to encourage awareness of the Holocaust and to provide a forum for debate.

The foreword and nine articles below are also published in The Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme Discussion Papers Journal, available upon request in English and French.

The discussion papers series provides a forum for individual scholars on the Holocaust and the averting of genocide to raise issues for debate and further study. These writers, representing a variety of cultures and backgrounds, have been asked to draft papers based on their own perspective and particular experiences. The views expressed by the individual scholars do not necessarily reflect those of the United Nations.
