In the Czech Republic, the greater involvement in projects and discussions within the IHRA has led to a more open dialogue and increased cooperation among Czech NGOs and government authorities. The establishment of an efficient system of lifelong learning about the Holocaust for primary and secondary school teachers is another key achievement of Czech's membership in the IHRA. Finally, continuous interest and encouragement from the IHRA leadership has helped the Czech government to resolve a longstanding issue and ensure that the sites of suffering from the time of the Nazi genocide of the Roma are protected and properly remembered.
