UN Adopts IHRA Definition to Combat Holocaust Denial

The UN General Assembly approved an Israeli-sponsored resolution aimed at combating Holocaust denial.

The resolution will provide a specific classification for Holocaust denial, using the working definition put together by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance. It will provide recommendations for how signatory countries can address the phenomenon, and will demand social media networks remove posts that fall under the IHRA definition.

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Gilad Erdan said, “Beyond defining Holocaust distortion and denial, this resolution is a commitment to make sure that this phenomenon will be tolerated no more.”
