Outreach Programme on the Holocaust

The Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme was established by United Nations General Assembly Resolution 60/7, with a simple and stark aim: to “mobilize civil society for Holocaust remembrance and education, in order to help to prevent future acts of genocide”. Over the years the Programme has established a global network of partners and developed versatile initiatives including educational resources, professional development programmes, a film series, panel discussions and exhibitions.
