This is the official website of the project “Countering Holocaust distortion on social media. Promoting the positive use of Internet social technologies for teaching and learning about the Holocaust”. The project is funded by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance ( through the 2020 IHRA Grant Projects Program IHRA Grant # 2020 792; IHRA Grant Strategy 2019 2023, line 2 “Countering distortion”; Duration: 1 September 2020 31 August 2022).
In this project we focus on social media as a positive technology to counter Holocaust distortion. Some previous experiences show that providing positive narratives has the advantage of avoiding the validation of distortion that can stem from directly engaging with Holocaust deniers or distorters, and activates important resources for the future to counter narratives around which distortion rumours are based.
