"Tkuma" Ukrainian Institute for Holocaust Studies conducts international scholarly conferences, releases scholarly literature (monographs, scholarly journal, textbooks, manuals, collections of documents and memoirs, etc.), coordinates and implements important research projects.

One of the main "Tkuma" Institute research topics is the feat of Righteous Among the Nations who rescued Jews during the Holocaust risking their own lives and lives of their families.

The mechanism of the Nazi "final solution of the Jewish question" in occupied Ukraine, problems of international relations during the World War II, the Holocaust, resistance etc. hold the important place in "Tkuma" Institute research.

Among "Tkuma" Institute publications issued in the first half of 2015 there are: new issue of the scholarly journal "Holocaust Studies", collection of memoirs "Reviving Memory", Proceedings of the International Scholarly Conference "Righteous and Other Rescuers during the Holocaust: Ukraine's Example in Comparative Context", album of photographs and documents "Nazi New Order in Ukrainian Cities" and others. We plan to release books on the Holocaust in Ukraine, the phenomenon of Righteous Among the Nations, research on regional aspects of the Holocaust.
