AJC Berlin played a decisive role in Germany’s adoption of the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s (IHRA) Working Definition of Antisemitism, which has been recommended by the federal cabinet for use as a basis for education, justice, and policing. AJC Berlin was also the first organization to call for the appointment of a Federal Commissioner for the Fight against Antisemitism, with success.
Not only does the Federal Government now have a Commissioner for Jewish Life in Germany and the Fight against Antisemitism, but so do almost all of the German federal states. With them, AJC Berlin cooperates on such issues as the implementation of the Working Definition of Antisemitism at all state and federal levels.
AJC Berlin organizes regular meetings of the Taskforce Education on Antisemitism, a forum for educational projects to address contemporary antisemitism.
