Holocaust Centre to chart Norwegians’ views about Jews. Oslo’s Holocaust Centre has received three million kroner from the Norwegian government to document how Norwegians view Jews. It has been found anti-Semitism and racism are common in Norwegian schools, and Anne Sender of the Mosaic Religious Community in Oslo has previously called on the government to act. “We want more knowledge about peoples’ attitudes and need a thorough, quality-controlled inquiry that could form the basis for future political measures,” Tora Aasland, acting Minister of Children, Equality, and Social Inclusion tells Aftenposten.
