IHRA Toolkit Against Distortion

Holocaust distortion is the greatest contemporary threat to the legacy of the Holocaust. It harms our democracies, normalizes antisemitism and fuels extremism. But despite the danger it poses, Holocaust distortion is often overlooked and rarely leads to concrete action.

The newly launched IHRA Toolkit Against Holocaust Distortion provides concrete suggestions and practical guidance for how to use key resources to help understand, raise awareness and counter Holocaust distortion. It provides policy makers, civil society representatives and further stakeholders with practical tools, guidance and example activities to empower them to be ambassadors for change – in their institutions, governments, and communities.

Our materials, including online campaigns, explanatory films, publications and policy recommendations, can inspire or be incorporated into activities and programs around 27 January and beyond. The toolkit includes the following activities:

  1. Raise Awareness: Get active on social media to #ProtectTheFacts 
  2. Learn & Inform: Watch or screen a short film and lead a discussion 
  3. Promote Policymaking: Let decision makers know about the IHRA’s recommendations 

Around International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the international community sends an important signal that it is committed to strengthening Holocaust education, remembrance, and research and to countering distortion. Let us all use this time to encourage action and take a stand against distortion.
