The events of the Holocaust scarred humanity and today our world continues to confront their legacy. The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) identifies the most pressing post-Holocaust issues across the globe, casting a spotlight upon them for the benefit of experts and policymakers, and it promotes practicable actions to address them. We solicit input from a range of disciplines and geographical regions and ensure that our recommendations are backed by research, informed by best practice and communicated effectively.
In the period 2018 – 2022 the IHRA’s experts and political representatives are focusing their efforts on countering Holocaust distortion and safeguarding the historical record. We do this by building an engaged network, by sharing practices and by making those practices visible and accessible to decision-makers. In this way we ensure accurate and sensitive remembrance of history with a view to informing the policymaking of today.
