Attacks in Copenhagen


IHRA Chair's Statement Regarding the Shootings in Denmark:

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 Copenhagen on 14-15 February.

It is with a heavy heart that I express my utter condemnation of these violent acts so soon after the horrific events which shook Paris last month. IHRA would like to express our deepest sympathy to the families of those killed in these hate crimes and to extend its full support to the Danish delegation to IHRA at this difficult time.

We remain, as ever, committed to the tenets of the Stockholm Declaration which reaffirm humanity’s common aspiration for mutual understanding and justice and these horrific events underline yet again the solemn responsibility that the international community shares to fight antisemitism and intolerance in all its forms.
