The IHRA’s network of experts includes representatives from the world’s foremost institutions which specialize in Holocaust education, who have issued a range of guidelines for educators and educational policymakers to consider when developing effective curricula and educational materials.

Our educational materials are available in over 25 languages. While we try to ensure the accuracy of all of our translations, in the event of any discrepancies the English translation takes precedence.
