IHRA Academic Working Group Statement on Scholarly Comparisons

"The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance aims to safeguard the record and counter distortion of the history of the Holocaust and genocide of the Roma. Its vision is to work towards the moral imperative of “a world without genocide.”

Eschewing scholarly comparison, which enables early recognition of the symptoms of militarized, dehumanizing, mass detention of civilian populations and supports voicing timely warnings, defeats the very meaning and purpose of the IHRA mission. The IHRA Academic Working Group stands in opposition to any and all such prohibitions."
