Former IHRA Chair, Ambassador Mihnea Constantinescu, passed away on 17 November 2018.
Ambassador Mihnea Constantinescu served as the IHRA Chair in 2016. IHRA Executive Secretary, Dr Kathrin Meyer, said, “Mihnea was a highly professional diplomat with a sharp wit and real warmth of character. I had the pleasure of working closely with him throughout 2016 and was struck by his unwavering commitment to combatting antisemitism and safeguarding the memory of the Holocaust. Even after his chairmanship ended, he continued to be active in the fight against antisemitism.”
