WASHINGTON, DC, January 23, 2019 - NCSEJ welcomes the adoption by the Republic of Moldova of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism on Friday, January 18.

With the issuance of the Decision on Condemning Anti-Semitism and Promotion of Tolerance by Prime Minister Pavel Filip on Friday, NCSEJ is confident that Moldavan authorities will be further empowered in their efforts to prevent and combat anti-Semitism, extremism, racism, and other forms of discrimination and intolerance.

Moldova’s adoption of this important definition sends a clear message, to both domestic and international audiences, that its government stands is committed to supporting the safety and security of its Jewish community, and is a vital partner in European efforts to fight hatred and bigotry.

The IHRA is an intergovernmental body focused on Holocaust education, remembrance and research, consisting of government representatives from democratic countries, with delegations chaired by Ambassadors or senior officials.
