“A world that remembers the Holocaust. A world without genocide”
Diario Judío México - Living as a Jew is not easy, being a minority with beliefs that no other religion shares, being stereotype by other religions throughout generations or even be massively hunted just for being an inferior race, that is what our past generations had to suffer just for born in a Jewish family. Even in 2018, there are still people all around the world that hate Jews and that is called “Anti-Semitism”.
It’s not a surprise that throughout history, many people have hated Jews. From the persecutions of Jews of the Middle Ages to the genocide of the Second World War. Although Anti-Semitism huge problem, fortunately, organizations like IHRA, help to make people aware about the great killing of Jews in the Second World War, so that another genocide as great as was occasioned by the regime of the German Nazis, don´t repeat again.
To start, IHRA stands for “International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance”, and is an intergovernmental organization founded in 1998 which unites governments and experts to strengthen, advance and promote Holocaust education, research and remembrance worldwide and to uphold the commitments of the Declaration of the Stockholm
International Forum on the Holocaust, in other words, his main objective is to prevent another genocide “A world that remembers the Holocaust.
Many people keep thinking that the meaning of Anti-Semitism is “to hate a Jew”, but, unfortunately, it does not end there. Since 2016, IHRA has been working in a real definition of Anti-Semitism, on May 26 of 2016, the 31 member countries of the International Alliance for the Remembrance of the Holocaust (IHRA) adopted a non-legally binding definition of work against anti-Semitism to guide the organization in its
work, this definition was finally made with the result of discussions between international experts and political representatives.
Even IHRA is still working in it, “Antisemitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of antisemitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.” (IHRA Anti-Semitism Official Definition). This definition had been officially adopted and endorsed by these governments: United Kingdom, Israel, Austria, Scotland, Romania, Germany, Bulgaria, Lithuania and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.
On the other hand, another Anti-Jews ideology is pretty strong, after the WW2, many people start seeing the Anti-Semitisms as Nazis, this because after the war, many people considerate racist to hate the jews and associated with the Nazi ideology, after that, some people start developing a new way of hating Jews but not being assimilated to Nazis. After that, the Anti-Zionism was born. Anti-Zionism it’s just like Antti-Semitism, just instead of hating Jews, its the ideology of the Jewish state, Israel.
They will be always Anti-Semitism.
But we can reduce it with the help of organizations like AHRA.
