IHRA Chair's Statement regarding the planned Holocaust Denial Competition in Iran:
As in previous years, IHRA’s 31 member countries stand united in their condemnation of the planned 2016 Holocaust denial cartoon competition in Iran.
The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) is pleased that on Friday 18 December the EU came to an agreement on a version of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which includes a specific reference to the Holocaust.
The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance is deeply concerned by the ongoing property dispute between the government of Moldova and the Jewish community of Moldova involving the Rabbi Tsirilson Synagogue and the Magen David Yeshiva.
Since 2012 the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) has been concerned with the potential impact of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on Holocaust research. While IHRA supports the EU decision to ensure the protection of personal data, the organization has always maintained that it is crucial that the right to be forgotten does not conflict with the responsibility to remember.
