    About Protect the Facts

    Holocaust distortion doesn’t stop at national borders, nor is it found only in one language. International cooperation is essential to countering it.

    Protect the Facts is an international initiative of the European Commission, the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), the United Nations, and UNESCO, who have joined forces to raise awareness of Holocaust distortion – both how to recognise it and how to counter it.
