International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance


May 2014




Sir Andrew Burns, IHRA Chair


This year the UK takes over the chair of The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) and the first conference was held in London.  Britain, having both the chair of IHRA this year and the Prime Minister’s Commission on the Holocaust will ensure, hopefully, that we see previously unseen levels of interest in post Holocaust issues here in the UK.

The conference dinner, hosted by both Secretary of State, Eric Pickles MP and Baroness Warsi was a packed event with dignitaries from around the world.  Proud moment for the UK and the Board of Deputies as sponsors.

IHRA is an intergovernmental body whose purpose is to place political and social leaders’ support behind the need for Holocaust education, remembrance and research both nationally and internationally
