Delegation Members

Working within the IHRA means working with people whose expertise and experience inspire activities and initiatives at a national level.
IHRA membership has given the Holocaust-related agenda in Slovakia an international dimension, with the truly positive impact of creating new networks and new activities such as a recent project on the genocide of the Roma (with IHRA financial support). Working within the IHRA means working with people whose expertise and experience inspire activities and initiatives at a national level.

Furthermore, IHRA membership helps to ensure that Holocaust education and remembrance remain important topics in public discourse and on a political level. The most important moment in recent years was the establishment of the first Slovak Holocaust Museum in the city of Sered, located on the authentic site of the former work and concentration camp, which opened in January 2016 on International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
