IHRA Chair’s Statement Regarding the Shootings in Paris

The IHRA Chair expresses deep concern about the fatal shootings, extending sympathy to the families of its victims.

As the Chair of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) and on behalf of all its members, I am deeply saddened by the fatal shootings which took place in Paris between 7-9 January.

IHRA would like to express our deepest sympathy to the families of those killed in these hate crimes. IHRA firmly supports the French Delegation to IHRA at this difficult time.

The Stockholm Declaration stresses the need for mutual understanding and justice and these horrific events underline the fact that the international community continues to share a solemn responsibility to fight antisemitism, xenophobia and intolerance in all its forms.

The unity shown in the face of such tragedy by heads of state as well as citizens across the world is deeply heartening and IHRA stands alongside them.
