This page will help you discover all the resources, guidance and other tools we have produced for memorial and museum professionals.

Why we work with memorial & museum professionals

Memorials and museums protect the dignity of the victims and survivors of the Holocaust. They help counter distortion and safeguard the record. The IHRA supports them through the IHRA Grant Program, its Museums and Memorials Working Group (MMWG), and IHRA Projects.

Working Definitions & Charters

IHRA Charter for Safeguarding Sites

All authentic sites of the Holocaust and genocide of the Roma are an enduring testament to the past. These sites are now approaching or surpassing 80 years old and face unprecedented challenges. Not a single site is properly and entirely safeguarded. Help ensure that these sites can continue to educate and memorialize for generations to come.

The IHRA Charter empowers policymakers, local stakeholders, and international stakeholders to safeguard sites of the Holocaust and genocide of the Roma.
