International Networking (IHRA and IC Memo)

Individual memorial museums, primarily in Germany, are guided in a variety of ways in their development and redesign. The diverse consultations in various contexts are part of the daily work, from small memorial museums, to governments, including in an international context.

At the Stockholm Holocaust Conference in 2000, memorial consultant Thomas Lutz participated at the invitation of the Swedish government. Since then, he has been the delegate of the Federal Republic of Germany in the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA). Within this framework, he is active in the Memorial Museums and Museums Working Group and numerous other projects.

The International Committee for Memorial Museums for Victims of State Crimes (IC MEMO in ICOM) was co-founded in 2001 by the head of the memorial museums department. Since then, the department has continuously promoted the worldwide exchange of memorial museums to state violence. The memorial department was extensively involved in the establishment and coordination of various working groups.
