Delegates to the IHRA include many of the world’s leading scholars in the history of the Holocaust, the events that led to it and its legacy. The IHRA deploys their expertise to address the most pressing contemporary policy concerns relating to Holocaust education, research, and remembrance.

The IHRA’s network of experts in Holocaust education, research and remembrance consists of specialists in museology, pedagogy, history, archaeology, memorialization and genocide studies, among many other disciplines.This breadth of expertise is the key to the IHRA’s effectiveness. By bringing together multidisciplinary groups to focus on specific priority areas, the IHRA is able to put forth meaningful policy recommendations.
