Stéphane Bruchfeld, The Department of History of Science and Ideas, Uppsala University.

Stephane Bruchfeld, is a doctoral candidate at The Department of History of Science and Ideas, Uppsala University.

He is researching the origins of Holocaust denial in Sweden, focusing in particular on the political party The National League of Sweden between the years 1938 and 1946 and its weekly party paper “Nationell Tidning and daily paper Dagsposten (from 1941)”. Bruchfeld is the author of several publications and articles, including “Förnekandet av Förintelsen – Nynazistisk historieförfalskning efter Auschwitz” (1995, 1996) on Holocaust denial, and recently (2020) “Should ‘the Holocaust’ be discarded, or what’s in a name? Historiography(-ies), memory(-ies) and metanarrative(s)” and “Nationalsocialistiska drömmar” (“National Socialist Dreams”) on the Nazi German “world view” and its propaganda.

With Paul Levine he co-authored “Tell Ye Your Children…” (1998), the centerpiece of the Swedish Living History information campaign. It has since been updated and expanded several times, as well as translated into some 20 languages. In 2001 the book was nominated for the Deutsche Jugendliteraturpreis, and the most recent translations (2018) were published in Croatia and Ukraine.
