The Polish Center for Holocaust Research (Polish: Centrum Badań nad Zagładą Żydów) is an academic and research center at the Polish Academy of Sciences. Created in 2003, the Center is an interdisciplinary research facility devoted to study of the Holocaust in historical perspective. The Center gathers psychologists, sociologists, literary historians, cultural anthropologists and other scholars to provide input on the scope and impact of the Jewish tragedy. The Center coordinates research and educational projects and grants, seminars, conferences and workshops, and publishes books and papers by Polish scientists as well as translations of international works. Since 2005, the Center published an academic journal called the Holocaust Studies and Materials.

In order to support and expand the scope of the Center's activities, in 2007 the Association of the Polish Center for Holocaust Research was created.
