“Our commitment must be to remember the victims who perished, respect the survivors still with us, and reaffirm humanity's common aspiration for mutual understanding and justice.”

IHRA Chair Condemns Antisemitic Christmas Carol on Romanian State Television
On behalf of the 31 members of International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), the Canadian Chair of IHRA strongly condemns the recent broadcast of an antisemitic Christmas carol on Romanian state television.
The lyrics promoting the Holocaust and violence against Jews are appalling and completely unacceptable. The loss of tens of thousands of Romanian Jews and millions of others in the horror of the Holocaust is a painful history, which must be remembered with solemnity and respect.
This horrendous display of antisemitism and racism is to be vigorously denounced and IHRA supports the condemnation of the broadcast by Romanian officials.
