The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA)

The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (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. The organization’s work is based on the Stockholm Declaration, adopted in 2000.

Estonia's cooperation with IHRA (then ITF) started in 2002, when Estonia applied to participate in the organization’s liaison projects. In 2005, a formal liaison relationship with IHRA was established.

Estonia became a full member of IHRA in December 2007, and has been an active member of the organization since then. Estonia has appointed representatives to all IHRA working groups. The Estonian delegation to IHRA consists of representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Education and Research, the Ministry of Culture, and the Council of the Jewish Community of Estonia. In the Academic Working Group, Estonia is represented by distinguished researchers of the World War II period in Estonia.

In 2016, Estonia presented its country report (PDF) on the activities related to Holocaust remembrance, education and research during the last five years.
