IHRA Charter for Safeguarding Sites

The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance Charter for Safeguarding Sites guides stakeholders in exhibiting good practice when safeguarding sites of the Holocaust and genocide of the Roma. In doing so, it helps protect all authentic sites of the Holocaust and ensures the future of remembrance, upholding the IHRA’s vision of a world that remembers the Holocaust. A world without genocide.

It was adopted by the Zagreb IHRA Plenary on 30 November 2023.
