Germany’s one‑year Chairmanship of the IHRA

Germany’s one‑year Chairmanship of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) ends today.

The working definition of antigypsyism/anti‑Roma discrimination provides a useful tool to help us recognise hatred, racism and discrimination both in everyday life and on the internet and to take decisive action. In particular, the working definition is intended to be used in schools and adult education, as well as in basic and further training in the judicial and executive spheres. It will make it easier to recognise and analyse the different facets and forms of antigypsyism as a certain type of racism, marginalisation and discrimination. You can find the working definition of antigypsyism/anti-Roma discrimination here. Germany’s one‑year Chairmanship of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) ends today. Greece will now take over. As a member of the troika, however, Germany will continue to work alongside the Greek Chairmanship to further the implementation of the projects launched during the last year, for example the Global Task Force on Holocaust Distortion initiated by Foreign Minister Maas.
