The IHRA gives Holocaust-related institutions in the United States an unprecedented forum for dialogue with communities and experts across the country and throughout the world. From the first IHRA Holocaust educational book, published under the direction of the Swedish government in 1998, to the expertise offered today by the Working Groups, the IHRA enables organizations worldwide to develop meaningful opportunities in key areas of education, research, and memorialization in schools, universities and communities.

The IHRA helps build the political will necessary for the institutionalization of these key
areas, and advances the need for open and transparent access to Holocaust-era archives.
