SWC New Report: A Watershed In the Fight Against Anti-Semitism

May 12, 2020


In the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s newest report, A Watershed in Fighting Antisemitism: The IHRA Working Definition of Antisemitism, SWC Director of Government Affairs Mark Weitzman, who introduced and steered the Working Definition of antisemitism to adoption, describes what this essential tool is, how it came into prominence and what it's impact has been.

Outside of the 34 member nations of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), it has also been adopted or endorsed by over 25 countries and international organizations such as the United Nations. In the US it is used by the State Department, Department of Education and served as the basis of President Trump's Executive Order on Antisemitism.
