“We applaud the announcement by Spanish Deputy Prime Minister Carmen Calvo that the government of Spain has adopted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism.

Spain joins a host of countries that have already taken this important step, which is vital to the global fight against Jew-hatred.  We encourage all countries, organizations, and institutions to join in adopting the IHRA definition as a means of combating the scourges of antisemitism and racism in all their manifestations.”
