Over 75 years after the end of the Second World War, Holocaust memory is under threat.

Holocaust distortion is on the rise and is eroding our understanding of historical truth.

Amplify Our Message

Holocaust distortion benefits from a general lack of awareness. Help spread the message about this urgent problem and encourage others to #ProtectTheFacts.

The campaign shareables are available in English, French, Hindi, KiSwahili, Portuguese, and Spanish.


Distortion is an urgent and growing issue. But it is not insurmountable.

Holocaust distortion can be found in all corners of society, from the media to politics and across the ideological spectrum. Countering it requires all of us to act.

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 United Nations, and UNESCO, who have joined forces to raise awareness of Holocaust distortion – both how to recognise it and how to counter it.

“Memory has its own language, its own texture, its own secret melody, its own archaeology, and its own limitations; it too can be wounded, stolen, and shamed; but it is up to us to rescue it and save it from becoming cheap, banal, and sterile. To remember means to lend an ethical dimension to all endeavors and aspirations.”

Elie Wiesel, 2003
