International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA)

The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) is an intergovernmental body whose purpose is to place political and social leaders’ support behind the need for Holocaust education, remembrance and research both nationally and internationally.

IHRA currently has 31 member countries, eleven observer countries and seven Permanent International Partners.  Membership is open to all democratic countries, and members must be committed to the Stockholm Declaration and to the implementation of national policies and programs in support of Holocaust education, remembrance, and research.

Through working groups that focus on Academic research, Education, Memorials and Museums, IHRA also addresses antisemitism and Holocaust denial as part of the organization’s work in engaging with Holocaust education.

Managing Director Kim Simon and Executive Director Stephen Smith both serve as part of the U.S. delegation for IHRA.
