Summary/Abstract: Achieving a better understanding of the Nazi and Communist totalitarian regimes through unbiased research is an integral part of the Institute’s broad mandate. The main research themes focus on how and why pre and post WWII democracies were undermined, and understanding who supported and resisted the totalitarian regimes that succeeded each other after a relatively short gap. The regimes’ crimes, the anti-democratic and criminal actions of state bodies, in particular the security services, the Communist Party, and organizations which took a lead from the party (such as the army, border police and people’s militias), are all included in documentation efforts.
