“We share a commitment to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust and to honour those who stood against it.”
-- Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust
The founding document of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance is the Stockholm Declaration on the Holocaust of the year 2000. The Stockholm Declaration was the outcome of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust, which brought together high-ranking political leaders and officials from more than forty countries to meet with civic and religious leaders, survivors, educators, historians and others who dedicated their work to promote Holocaust education, commemoration and research.
The International Memorial Museums Charter was adopted in 2012. An Addendum was added to the Charter in 2016. The Charter was produced by IHRA's Working Group on Museums and Memorials as a set of guidelines dealing with ethics and the main concerns of memorial museums for the victims of the Holocaust. The Addendum was developed together with the IHRA Committee on the Genocide of the Roma. The Charter is available in various languages.
