“We share a commitment to throw light on the still obscured shadows of the Holocaust.”
-- Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust
On 5 October the IHRA Chair, Ambassador Mihnea Constantinescu, and IHRA Executive Secretary, Dr Kathrin Meyer, are participating in high level political meetings in Warsaw, Poland.
The day will begin with meetings at the Chancellery of the President and the Institute of National Remembrance and will be followed by visits to the Ministry of Education, Foreign Affairs and Culture and National Heritage. In addition to the political meetings, the IHRA delegation will have the opportunity to visit the POLIN Museum and meet Director Dariusz Stola.
