My main research interests are in the fields of modern European history and Jewish history, in particular questions that intersects the political and the social. I am working on several research projects that deals with Jewish history in the post-war years. One of my research projects is concerned with efforts to rehabilitate Holocaust survivors in Sweden in the post-war years. I have co-edited a volume about early Holocaust memory, and I am also co-authoring a book on Sweden-Israel relations.

Dr Pontus Rudberg is a historian and researcher at the Hugo Valentin Centre.
My main research interests are in the fields of modern European history and Jewish history, in particular questions that intersects the political and the social. My doctoral dissertation, published under the title The Swedish Jews and the Holocaust (2017), focused on how the Jewish communities in Sweden responded to the Holocaust. I am currently working on several research projects that deals with Jewish history in the post-war years. The main project is concerned with Swedish efforts to rehabilitate, integrate and re-emigrate Holocaust survivors in the post-war years. Together with the historian Johannes Heuman I have co-edited the volume Early Holocaust Memory in Sweden: Archives, Testimonies and Reflections (2020), and together with the legal historian Michael Livingston I am co-authoring a book on Sweden-Israel relations.
I have also conducted research in military history and was a visiting fellow at University of Oxford’s Changing Character of War Programme (2017). With a background as curator and museum professional I also have a strong interest in museums and public history.
