Research on the Nazi dictatorship

Research on the Nazi dictatorship has been an integral part of work at the Institute since the HAIT was founded. Since 1993, the Institute has published numerous studies on issues from an international and/or national perspective, but also on Saxony as a regional case study. The empirical studies are characterised by methodological diversity in addition to the range of topics.
Besides the political history of institutions, interest focusses on issues in the history of society, everyday life and experience, as well as issues cutting across historical watersheds. Several projects are being conducted in co-operation with the Saxon Memorial Foundation in Memory of the Victims of Political Tyranny and with the Saxon State Centre for Political Education.
