In Luxembourg, interest in the Holocaust is growing constantly. The intense networking among IHRA member countries has contributed strongly to Luxembourg re-evaluating its focus on the Holocaust. The report on Jewish assets has drawn public attention to the subject and has raised new questions about the involvement of Luxembourgers in the Holocaust and the role of Luxembourg civil servants in deportations.

In 2004, the European Ministers of Education established a special Holocaust Memorial Day, in which schools play an eminent role. Furthermore, the government recently made the decision to erect a dedicated monument to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust.
