This paper is devoted to the contemporary discussion conducted by theoreticians of history on the place of ethics in historical discourse. In particular it presents the so-called ethical turn of humanist studies in historiography. This turn, among others, finds its expression in the critique of the past understanding of the role of ethics in historical writings. In effect, the standing ethics of a historian are being questioned and an attempt is undertaken to define a new moral code of a historian. Various statements of scholars agreeing with the turn are analysed, yet the author concerning the analysis imposed a limit. Only the discussion connected with Shoah (Holocaust), due to the role of ethics in this research has been analysed. It was this field, in which the defining of key problems and of the role of ethics in history was developed the earliest. Authors aim was to systematise these problems, statements and underline these fragments, which could help define the positive postulate of ethic approach in historical science and research. Such a framework for Shoah is constructed in the article.
