The very concrete achievements of North Macedonia in the areas of Holocaust remembrance, education and research, as well in combating antisemitism and Holocaust denial and distortion have recently been appropriately valued by its admission as the 35th IHRA Member Country. The IHRA membership is not only a recognition, but even more an additional impetus and obligation for the Government and civil society organizations to enhance and increase their work in all Holocaust related areas. Our lasting and firm commitment to continue working in these areas is not only a political determination. It is our moral duty and debt towards the 7,144 Jews from our country deported to the death camp Treblinka in 1943 – Holocaust victims. At the same time, it is our pledge for the young generations who should provide fresh and substantial contribution to the overall efforts to nurture the memories of the tragic past and shape a better future.
