“Our commitment must be to remember the victims who perished, respect the survivors still with us, and reaffirm humanity's common aspiration for mutual understanding and justice.”
-- Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust
IHRA Honorary Chairman, Professor Yehuda Bauer, has issued the following statement: "The 'Unite the Right' rally which took place in Charlottesville last week, in which counter-protester Heather Heyer was murdered, not only leaves a stain on America but is also a timely reminder of the perpetual need to combat the twisted ideology of the far-right everywhere it appears.
As Honorary Chairman of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance, a unique organization which unites governments and experts to strengthen, advance and promote Holocaust education, remembrance and research worldwide, I call on the international community to strongly condemn these messages of hatred and discrimination and to unite in action against them."
