“We share a commitment to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust and to honour those who stood against it.”
-- Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust
Holocaust Education Trust Ireland organised an international conference on antisemitism and Holocaust denial which took place in Dublin on 18-19 November 2010. To listen to the podcast of the event click here.
Scholars attended from the US, Canada, Britain, France, Germany and Israel. This is the first time such a conference has taken place in Ireland and the first time these two subjects have been addressed simultaneously in an academic forum. The conference venue was Trinity College Dublin. HETI hopes that the gathering of such eminent scholars in Dublin will prompt further research and academic debate. It is the intention of the organisers that a serious publication will be one of the outcomes of this endeavor.
The event was co-sponsored by the United Nations Department of Public Information and the Under-Secretary-General, Kiyo Akasaka, sent a message of goodwill. ITF Chair Dan TIchon of Israel was also in attendance.
