Launched on January 27, 2020, the 75th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi concentration and extermination camps at Auschwitz, our campaign against Holocaust denial, distortion and glorification will run until the end of February 2020.
As part of this campaign we will be producing a number of briefings looking at examples of online Holocaust denial, distortion and glorification. We will be calling on your support to report them to the relevant online platforms and on the platforms to take appropriate action.
We also encourage you to report further examples to us using our advanced Fight Against Hate reporting tool for Facebook, YouTube and Twitter content (see below). We also welcome reports of content on other online platforms, please message our Facebook page with details including a link to the content.
This is the first of our month long campaigns for 2020. Each campaign focuses on a different area of online hate and is designed to scale up as additional resources become available.
