The Spanish government has endorsed the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) Working Definition of Anti-Semitism.
The IHRA is the only intergovernmental organization mandated to focus solely on Holocaust-related issues; With the scourge of antisemitism on the rise, it took a leading role in combatting it. IHRA experts determined that in order to begin to address the problem of antisemitism, there must be clarity about what antisemitism is.
Spain has been a member of the IHRA since 2008. It is one of 34 member countries.
The Federation of Jewish Communities of Spain thanked the Spanish government for its decision.
