Germany to assume chair of IHRA for 1 year; will fight Holocaust denial

MARCH 3, 2020

Germany is set to assume a one-year chairmanship of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) on Tuesday, with the aim of fighting Holocaust denial, Deutsche Welle reported.

Michaela Küchler, the German Foreign Office's special commissioner for relations with Jewish organizations, is set to head the German IHRA team, and has stated that the aim was to "do more" to fight Holocaust denial and antisemitism.

Holocaust denial is a criminal offense in Germany and is punishable with a sentence of up to five years in prison, and similar laws exist in other European countries.

According to the Central Council of Jews in Germany, the federal republic has a "special responsibility" in the fight against Holocaust denial.
