About us


NEPAT [Brazilian Center for Nazism and Holocaust Studies]

is an independent initiative of historians.

It is a group created, produced, and headed only by women.


Our researches and goals

NEPAT arose from the need to create spaces for academic dialogue in Brazil on the themes of Nazism and the Holocaust and produce accessible content covering these topics. 

Academically speaking, we realized that the field of studies on these subjects is not yet consolidated or centralized in our country. Brazilian historians face constant challenges in conducting their research due to a lack of investment, funding, and opportunities. Therefore, one of our goals is to make these research exchanges viable and contribute to researchers' qualifications. 

In addition, we observed a growing demand from the general public for quality historical content about World War Two, Nazi Germany, and the Holocaust. These subjects undeniably spark a lot of interest.

We believe that the dissemination of knowledge carried out in a committed and ethical manner is essential for constructing a democratic and critical society.


Our academic work

NEPAT has held three academic events so far.


Our inaugural event, "80 years of the Second World War: Echoes, Representations and Memories" took place in 2019, at the Faculty of Philosophy and Human Sciences at UFMG.  


In 2021, we promoted our first international event, which took place online,"What is left of the Swastika: Nazism, Negationism and Memory".


In 2022, we promoted our second international event, "The burden of our times: the Third Reich in perspective".


We want to keep having annual events about the Nazi regime and the Holocaust to remain a reliable source for academic events on these themes worldwide.. 


Our social media production and scientific divulgation

Taking as a starting point the debates promoted by the Public History field, NEPAT, in 2020, started a project for the production of content and scientific divulgation on social networks.


In our social media, we produce posts divided into niches covering a multiplicity of themes and approaches about the 20th century.

In addition, we have a podcast, Desnazificando, in which we talk about Nazism, education and the 20th century, debating concepts, ideas, and events in a fun way, but with depth and quality.
