IHRA Ministerial Meeting in Brussels
On 19 January 2020, the Ministerial Meeting of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) was held in Brussels, welcoming ministers and high-ranking government representatives from 35 countries for a unique summit to declare their commitment to fighting Holocaust distortion, antisemitism, antigypsyism and other forms of discrimination.
The ministerial meeting, at the Residence Palace Press Centre in Brussels, saw IHRA Member Countries adopt the IHRA 2020 Ministerial Declaration. Dr. Rado Genorio, the Ambassador of the Republic of Slovenia, was also member of the Slovenian delegation led by Minister of Foreign Affairs dr. Miro Cerar.
Adoption of the IHRA 2020 Ministerial Declaration is timely, as January 2020 marks 20 years since the Stockholm Declaration, the founding document of IHRA. This Declaration focused on remembering the victims who perished during the Holocaust, respecting the survivors and reaffirming humanity’s common aspiration for mutual understanding and justice.
Slovenia is a member of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), which deals with the Holocaust remembrance, education and research.
