Launch of the #memoriefaraura (memorywithouthate) platform

Bucharest

The Elie Wiesel National Institute for the Study of the Holocaust in Romania will launch the project #memoriefaraura (memorywithouthate) on the 21st of January 2019. It is an educational project designed to be exclusively used online, based on the idea that social media offers the environment for easily obtaining information and expressing views.

Its objective is to use social media tools to promote and engage in discussions on the memory and history of the Holocaust in Romania.

This project, together with the www.faraura.ro platform (launched in December 2018 and highlighting ways in which social media and digital tools are used to promote and disseminate hate speech online), aims to better inform the public about the Holocaust in Romania and to combat prevalent hate speech and Antisemitism themes used online.
