A Global Campaign
It has become shockingly common on a global scale for governments, leading public figures, and others to minimise or misrepresent the impact of the Holocaust and downplay the crimes of the Nazi regime. This is Holocaust distortion.
Holocaust distortion is deeply insulting to the victims and survivors of the Holocaust and threatens our democratic values.

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 Council of Europe, 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.
