The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), formerly the Task Force for International Cooperation on Holocaust Education, Remembrance, and Research (ITF) until January 2013,[1] is an intergovernmental organization established in 1998.

Official narrative

The organization's mandate is founded upon the principles laid out by the Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust.[2] The stated aims of IHRA are to mobilize and coordinate political and social leaders' support for Holocaust education, remembrance, and research at national and international levels. In 2007, IHRA expanded its thematic mandate to include the genocide of the Roma[3] and other topics, such as genocide prevention and combating antisemitism.[4]

Definition of "Anti-semitism"

The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance defines "anti-semitism" as "denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavour" has been described as "The most blatant attempt to equate anti-Zionism with antisemitism".[5] This definition is explicitly rejected by Labour Against The Witchhunt.
