Safeguarding the record and countering distortion
The IHRA recognizes more than ever the need for a fact-based approach to the history with which it is concerned. Accordingly, the IHRA focuses on programs which aim to safeguard the historical record (including sites, testimony and archival material) of the Holocaust and the genocide of the Roma and to counter distortion. These thematic focuses are of particular relevance and concern to societies presently and in the coming years. 
The IHRA’s projects help it work towards defining the nature of the risks and dangers which are of concern. These temporary entities are established to meet specific objectives within a certain period of time. IHRA Projects increase cooperation between the IHRA’s expert and political levels, strengthen international exchange, and utilize the IHRA’s multidisciplinary expertise in their work to safeguard the record and counter distortion.
