A valuable member of the IHRA, Dr Gilly Carr also leads its project of safeguarding Holocaust related sites to preserve its record.

The IHRA welcomes the appointment of Dr Gilly Carr as the first representative for Guernsey, Jersey and Alderney in the UK’s delegation to the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance. As the foremost international network of governments and experts working on the topic of the Holocaust, a central pillar of IHRA’s work is safeguarding the historical record of the Holocaust.

Dr Carr is also leading the IHRA project ‘Safeguarding Sites: the IHRA Charter for best practice’ which aims to create guidelines for the protection of sites. The research and preservation of sites where Nazi atrocities took place is a fundamental part of safeguarding the record and remembering victims and survivors.

The IHRA looks forward to working with Guernsey, Jersey and Alderney to strengthen international cooperation and exchange between experts and policymakers.

The IHRA unites governments and experts to strengthen, advance and promote Holocaust education, remembrance and research worldwide, and to uphold the commitments of the 2000 Stockholm Declaration.
