The IHJR was invited by the Ukrainian Jewish Encounter Initiative to help develop a project on Ukrainian-Jewish historical legacies. The project is related in substance to the successful work of the IHJR Project on Polish-Jewish Reconciliation. Its objectives include the establishment of a network of scholars and experts, a comprehensive and authoritative shared historical narrative on Ukrainian-Jewish relations, and a website that can serve to provide access to historical information, commentary and relevant documentation. It is intended that the resulting shared historical narrative would inform and provide a framework for other components – including the production of a university-level textbook, an illustrated popular history, and multimedia exhibits.
The Institute for Historical Justice and Reconciliation (IHJR) works with educational and public policy institutions to organize and sponsor historical discourse in pursuit of acknowledgement, and the resolution of historical disputes. Founded in 2004, the Institute for Historical Justice and Reconciliation (IHJR) is an independent, nonprofit institution based in The Hague.
