Task Force for International Cooperation on Holocaust Education, Remembrance, and Research

The Task Force for International Cooperation on Holocaust Education, Remembrance, and Research (ITF) was founded in 1998. It consists of representatives of government, as well as governmental and non-governmental organizations. The ITF's purpose is to place political and social leaders' support behind the need for Holocaust education, remembrance, and research both nationally and internationally.
For its 2011 grant programme the ITF calls for applications from organizations and institutions in the field of Holocaust education, remembrance, and research that wish to carry out projects which fit within the remit of one of these two programmes. The ITF encourages grant applications that cut across the ITF's mandate fields with activities combining education, remembrance, and research. Applications related to the Roma genocide are encouraged.

The Grant Strategy consists of two programmes:
1) Develop strategies for Holocaust Memorial Days in a way that injects substance, real meaning and educational value into these events.
2) Raise awareness and promote research into the causes of the Holocaust, its driving forces and mechanism, with a view to preventing genocide, ethnic cleansing, racism, antisemitism, and xenophobia.
The minimum grant available is 15,000€ per year. The maximum available is 50,000€ per year. Grant allocation is provided for a maximum of two years. The application deadline for both grant programmes is 1 February 2011
