The Centre for Historical Research and Documentation on War and Contemporary Society (CEGESOMA) is a Belgian federal research institution on wars and conflicts of the twentieth century and their impact on Belgium. Founded in 1969, it collects archives and documentation, carries out research, organises academic events and is involved in different public history activities. The documentation is searchable through the online catalogue and can be consulted in the public reading room of the Centre's historic Art Deco building in Brussels. CEGESOMA participates in several international networks, including the International Committee for the History of the Second World War and the FP-7 project EHRI (European Holocaust Research Infrastructure), of which it is one of twenty partner institutions.
