Why we work with policymakers

Policy based on evidence and research has the greatest impact. We bridge the gap between policymakers and experts, empowering key decision makers to build a world that remembers the Holocaust, a world without genocide.

Protect the Facts campaign

Holocaust distortion doesn’t stop at national borders, nor is it found only in one language. International cooperation is essential to countering it.

The Protect the Facts campaign is an IHRA joint initiative with the European Commission, the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), the United Nations, and UNESCO.

The campaign aims to raise awareness of Holocaust distortion – both how to recognize it and how to counter it.
