Abstract [en]

This study focus is on pupils historical understanding of the Holocaust. The main purpose and

question in this study is to answer what types of work methods and materials pupils used in

Holocaust education in historical class. The method used is an survey on 136 high school’s

pupils in Sweden for receiving a better understanding of what historical use of Holocaust pupils

meet in historical class. The analyze of the material from the survey focused on four out of

seven historical uses based on the historian Klas-Göran Karlsson’s typology on the uses of

history, those are ideological, moral, political-educational and scientific use. The theory is used

for analysing how pupils encounter the holocaust in the historical classroom. Results from the

survey show that pupils meet a variation of historical information and facts is used throw how

and what pupils work with the Holocaust. All four of the historical use of history could be seen

in the results, but above all the scientific use and the ideological use. The scientific use of the

Holocaust focuses on factors and relationship between causal factor and outcome. The

ideological use of the Holocaust focuses on the understanding of democratic and human values.

The study reveals that no historical use is dominant in the different classes, that means the

individual meeting whit information about the Holocaust and pupil has an important value in

what type of understanding and historical use the pupil have of the Holocaust.
