IHRA membership has, without a doubt, influenced policymaking, and remembrance of, research on and education about the Holocaust in the Netherlands. International projects and exhibitions between Dutch museums and research institutions have emerged, a virtual reality educational tool was developed and researched, and contributions were made to the redesign of the site of former German Nazi-concentration camp Sobibór.
Under the Dutch Chairmanship of the IHRA, reports by member countries were established. Furthermore, a multi-lingual digital exhibition on the genocide of the Sinti and Roma was launched, a Masters program on the Holocaust was developed, and in 2010 two academic centers merged to become the NIOD, Institute for War, Genocide and Holocaust Studies.
